Former Homersfield goods shed and station site
Former Homersfield goods shed and station site
On the former Waveney valley railway running from Beccles to Tivetshall. Homersfield station served a largely agricultural area, although its importance in WW2 was increased with a large 1 mile siding nearby. It was used for bomb transportation to nearby airfields like Flixton.
The station was demolished when most of the route from Dichingham to Harleston was turned into a road, the goods shed survives as a reminder that at this quaint rural branch, famous engines like the surviving J15 at the North Norfolk railway used to regularly work. The goods shed is now a garage.
