Beccles Museum is hosting a special book signing day on Friday, May 25 when local author Sheila Hutchinson will sign her latest book, Reedham and Berney Arms Railway.

The 140-page book turns back the years and records the first purchases of land and building of bridges and stations to bring the train from Norwich to Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft in the mid-1800s. Much of the detail has been researched from press and records, and many local families have also supplied memories and photographs.

Other books by the author available are: The River Yare; Breydon & Beyond, Berney Arms Past & Present, Cantley,Limpenhoe & Southwood Remembered, Beighton & Moulton St Mary Remembered and The Lower Bure from Great Yarmouth to Upton.

The Museum at Leman House, Ballygate, Beccles opens at 11.30am through to 4.30pm.

They are also available from Jarrolds Norwich, City Books Norwich, Beccles Books, Reedham PO, Humpty Dumpty Brewery Reedham, and Music Lovers Gorleston.
