Derelict railway station
Derelict railway station
It's hard to imagine that this was one of many small, country railway stations which dotted the countryside of Norfolk. In the late 19th century, there were various lines connecting Norwich with King's Lynn, Cromer, Aylsham, Fakenham and Melton Constable, which was once known as the Crewe of the East. This is a picture of Hindolveston Station now privately owned but badly in need of some attention. The platform is where the railings can be seen and in the background is an old coach, minus its wheels. The line went to Melton and was closed even before the Beeching cuts of the 1960s.
