Mundesley's Railway Heritage

The effect that the opening of the branch line from North Walsham in 1898 by the Norfolk and Suffolk Joint Railway, owned by Midland & Great Northern Railway had on the growth of Mundesley. Three hotels were built in anticipation of the increase in visitors, and camping coaches were based at the station during the summer months, to provide accommodation to holiday makers, many coming from the industrial midlands. Unfortunately traffic never justified the large three platforms, and services were closed in 1964, and the goods traffic a year later.
