Greater Anglia, in partnership with the Humpty Dumpty Brewery and Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnership are offering a free guided 'rail ale' walk on Saturday, March 24.

The walk, starting at the Reedcutter Inn, three minutes from Cantley station, at 12.45pm, and will end three miles down the road at Reedham Ferry Inn by the River Yare, only 15 minutes from Reedham station.

To join the free event, catch the 11:36 service to Cantley from Norwich, arriving at 11:52, the 11.48 from Lowestoft, arriving at 12:16, or the 11.17 from Great Yarmouth - changing at Brundall - arriving at 11:52.

Lesley George, partner and business manager at Humpty Dumpty Brewery, said: 'We live in a beautiful part of the county which is well-served by trains, walks and pubs. We thought this was a good opportunity to make the most of our lovely countryside and views, from the trains and footpaths, as well as enjoy the hospitality from two of our local pubs, including local ales!'
