Overgrown trackbed of the former Hunstanton to Wells line
The West Norfolk Junction Railway arrived in Wells in 1866, coming from Heacham on a 18 mile single track. It entered Wells on a sharp curve, turning through a full 180 degrees before converging with the Wells and Fakenham branch from Dereham for the final approach. Here it crossed Lady Anne's Drive, leading to Holkham Gap. The section to the east of the Drive is overgrown as can be seen here. On the other side of the road it is a (gated) track leading into cattle pastures.
