Bressingham's journey towards normality!

Next Post

Now that lockdown is easing (despite a few stops and starts!) and Bressingham Steam & Gardens is starting to get back to normal we decided to take a look back through our journey back to normality!

April 5th: One week away from having trains back in operation!

You can tell we’re excited in this one as we announce that “We’re making slow progress on the log flume.” only later admitting that “We’re just kidding about the log flume! We have no planned additions of that kind yet! Not unless it’s a steam powered one anyway.” 

It’s forgivable when you see Chris Williams’ confusing photo involving a rowing boat on our train tracks:

April 11th: Trains still not running - but the Gardens are open!

This post included some lovely photos of our Gardens in their full spring glory.

All they need are some visitors!

April 14th: We’re finally back in Steam!

On our first day back in steam we welcomed well over 100 visitors over the course of the day today.

“we all felt warmer in heart for the exclamations of “look at that!” and “can we go round again please?!””

April 26th: Call the Fire Brigade!

This is a brilliant example of museums working together and helping each other out - in this post we take time to thank @norfolkfiremuseum for helping us clear the lake at the rear of the site, near the Engine Shed and Fairground.

“We’re a lovely and collaborative bunch us museums and we too bring all sorts of skills and tools to the collective table, not least of all Al’s immense knowledge of and expertise in our ticketing system.”

April 29th: Meet the Team

Following the success of Channel 5’s “Inside the Steam Train Museum” show featuring Bressingham many of our team are now world famous! (sort of)

In this post we celebrate the notoriety of one of our long serving team member Phil Thompson, who was featured in the programme and is now a familiar face to many visitors.
