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.

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.
