Norfolk Victorian Seaside Resorts & Fishing Villages
- Sheringham

For centuries Sheringham had been a 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 its heyday 64 trains a day passed in and out of Sheringham Station. The station still survives, albeit as a volunteer heritage railway, as part of the Poppy Line, which supports a still flourishing tourist trade. Much else has changed.
