I'm considering coming to old buck this weekend as i have now become a temporary resident in Ipswich.

Just wondering how i could get there using public transport. Whats the closest train station to it?

Hey BigJ....Attleborough's your best bet, its only a few miles down the road...maybe give the DZ a call and maybe someone will come and pick you up for a small beer fee? Worth a shot? I'd pick you up on the way through but am off climbing for the weekend...have a good one, hope the weather improves! Give them a ring first.... :D

From what I can gather (from here) you can get the train from Ipswich to Diss, which is about 10miles from the DZ. Not sure about busses that go from the train station, I wouldn't imagine they are very frequent (if at all), especially at the weekend.

When were you intending to head up?

Ben.

It seems like Diss is the better option than attleborough because it means going up to norwich and back down again which can take over 2 hours for the journey. It's only 25 mins to Diss. Then its a case of getting to the dz... I'm trying to find some bus information but no luck yet..

I thinking about going up this weekend if the weather is ok (maybe a bit windy).

I just found that the bus service from Diss to Attleborough has been stopped due to insufficient use. There is a partial service but couldnt find details of it.

I'm arriving Old Buck on Friday mate, and I'll gladly pick you up from Attleboro, or Diss (if you really can't make it to A?) Buy me a pint and we're sweet, let me know by pm please.

Cheers
