The Ride Stuff

The adventures of a couple of happy bikers


Whitwell Station, near Reepham in Norfolk, was closed to passengers in 1959 but was re-opened in 2009 as a working museum running steam and diesel engines. The station has become the favourite Friday night hot-spot for bikers to meet up.


Interesting Snippet: The town of Reepham appears to have two churches – but one actually belongs to the parish of Whitwell. St Michael’s (Whitwell) and St Mary’s (Reepham) are joined together by a passageway from the chancel at Whitwell to the nave at Reepham. St Michael’s is no longer used for regular parish worship but now serves as a Church Community Hall. The prominent tower at St Michael’s retains its eight bells whereas St Mary’s church has just two, and so when the peals are heard over this part of Norfolk it is Whitwell’s bells that are being rung, not Reepham’s.
