Norfolk County Council is spending some of its Bus Service Improvement funding on restoring up to half hourly daytime and hourly evening buses to Silfield, passing close to Wymondham railway station.
If you can easily reach Cringleford bus interchange or one of the bus stops along Norwich Road in Hethersett, if you can then negotiate the stepped footbridge at Wymondham station and if you want to travel from or to Brandon, Cambridge or Stansted Airport, the restored Silfield bus service 14 could be useful with pretty good connections on Mondays to Saturdays.
All bus stops in Hethersett also have half-hourly daytime services to Norwich railway station on Mondays to Saturdays, offering easy connections from and to Liverpool, London, Manchester, Nottingham, Peterborough and Sheffield.
