Norfolk - Wells and Walsingham

Norfolk - Wells and Walsingham

Visit the lovely harbour town of Wells next the Sea situated on the North Norfolk Coast - followed by a journey on the Wells and Walsingham Light Railway - The World's smallest public railway!

The Wells & Walsingham Light Railway was born out of one man's passionate dream, hard work and sheer determination. Lt. Cmdr. Roy Francis had already built the mile long 10¼" gauge Beach railway at Wells. In 1979 he started to construct the WWLR on the four miles of old Great Eastern track bed from Wells to Walsingham. Work was completed in 1982 and on 6th April services began on schedule making it the longest 10¼" narrow gauge steam railway in the world.

 

"Pilgrim", an 0-6-0 side tank engine, hauled the train until 1987 when the new unique 2-6-0 + 0-6-2 Garratt locomotive "Norfolk Hero" came into service. Two extra coaches were added to the train increasing the seating capacity to 76. A second Garratt locomotive "Norfolk Heroine" entered service in April 2011. A redundant signal box was moved from Swainsthorpe to Wells, where the ground floor was converted to provide a shop and tearoom.

 

Regular trains steam from the seaside town of Wells next the Sea to the beautiful village of Walsingham, with it's famous Abbey and shrines. Sit back and enjoy the nostalgic and atmospheric sights, sounds and smells of steam trave, whilst clanking over and under bridges, past a bill-fort and an abandoned platform. Beautiful views, wildflowers, butterflies, birds of prey, brown hare and deer all help to make your journey with us a memorable one.
