Norfolk Victorian Seasides & Fishing Villages
- Sheringham

For centuries Sheringham had been a hard-working but thriving fishing town with an agricultural hinterland. While that has continued in 1887 the railway came to the town promoting a spurt in growth as holidaymakers flocked to what became a fashionable resort. With a direct line to London in slightly over 3 hours in it’s heyday 64 trains a day passed in and out of Sheringham station. The station still survives albeit as a volunteer heritage railway which supports a still florishing tourist trade. Much else has changed.
