How to get here


The reserve is best aproached from the village of Brundall which lies east of Norwich just off the A47. From the A47 roundabout, drive through Brundall and continue on the same road out towards Strumpshaw. Soon after you pass the Strumpshaw sign, turn right into Stone Road. Follow Stone Road and take the second road on the right (also Stone Road). Take the first turn on the right onto Station Road, which leads to Buckenham train station and Buckenham Marshes.


An hourly bus service from Norwich stops 1.5 miles (2.4 km) from the reserve on the Brundall to Strumpshaw Road at the junction of Long Lane and Stone Road (weekdays and Saturdays only). From the bus stop (arriving from direction of Norwich), walk towards Brundall for 40 m, then turn left down Stone Road and immediately turn right into Low Road. Follow Low Road past RSPB Strumpshaw Fen. Turn right at the road junction and continue until Buckenham station, adjacent to the marsh. Buses are numbers 17 and 17A operated by First Eastern Counties.


A number of trains on the Norwich to Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft (Wherry Lines) services call at Buckenham station by request at the weekend. Four trains each way call on Sundays and Public Holidays, one on Saturdays. The entrance to the reserve is adjacent to the station.
