 MORE CALLS AT BUCKENHAM

Buckenham is situated between Cantley and Brundall and most trains shoot through there without stopping.It is mostly used by cyclists, birdwatchers and walkers and until December 2021 was only served by half a dozen or Sunday trains and one each way on Saturdays.The new timetable introduced a stop each way Monday to Fridays.Thus a train from Lowestoft call at Buckenham at 0922 on its way to Norwich: and a late afternoon train from Norwich calls at Buckenham at 1711 on its way to Lowestoft . This service is likely to be used by some people wishing to walk or cycle to Buckenham a nearby station such as Brundall or Lingwood:or even a walk along the river bank to Cantley. If Buckenham receives the same number of stops as Berney Arms, that could attract more visitors, since both stations serve a similar group.
