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 and Beyond, Berney Arms Past and Present, Cantley, Limpenhoe and Southwood Remembered, Beighton and Moulton St Mary Remembered and The Lower Bure from Great Yarmouth to Upton.

The museum in Ballygate, Beccles, NR34 9ND, will be open from 11.30am to 4.30pm.
