No trace of the station exists today and since the location and some of the surrounding counteryside was designated for development, residential housing now covers much of the land seen here.

459 viewsGreat Yarmouth suffered two major rail closured in 1959 and as a consequence the dismal scene of closed stations on once important rail links became common. Just outside Great Yarmouth and the first station on the line to London, Belton and Burgh Castle was one such station and is seen here in an unwanted and unused state on 15th July, 1963.
