Caldecote – Bus Stop

This bus stop sign is at least ten years old, although at some stage it has become part of the hedge. The sign helpfully informs anyone walking by looking for a bus stop that there are no buses that serve this area. I’m not sure that the council is generally in the habit of meandering around the countryside putting up signs in remote locations saying there’s no bus stop, so I assume that there was once a service.

The public transport situation isn’t good around here, especially given that Oxburgh Hall is located near to this closed bus stop. Oxburgh Hall themselves don’t even put walking as an option to get there (quite rightly, very few people would decide to walk there in the way I did), although do suggest cycling. For those getting a train, the advice is “Downham Market, 10 miles, then taxi, no public transport”. Marvellous….
