A number of signs have been placed on key access points on Marriott’s Way to direct walkers and cyclists into Reepham town centre with its offering of shops, pubs and cafes.
So far they have been positioned at sites near Reepham Station on Cawston Road, at Whitwell Station and along the temporary diversion of Marriott’s Way owing to badger activity.
Developed by the Town Team as part of the Reepham Economic Strategy, the signs have been produced by Reepham Chamber of Commerce and approved by Norfolk County Council. Part of the cost of producing the signs has been provided by Broadland District Council.
Over the coming months the Town Team will be looking to improve all the signage in around the town centre, as well as areas of interest, in particular introducing clear and attractive signs at key locations. The signs are also part of a project to develop a simple branding strategy for Reepham.
Marriott’s Way is a long-distance footpath and bridleway along the routes of two disused railway lines between Norwich and Aylsham in Norfolk. It is 21 miles (34 km) long and named after William Marriott, the chief engineer and manager of the Midland and Great Northern Railway system. It also forms part of the National Cycle Network (Route1).
