Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hunstanton was a railway station which served the seaside town of Hunstanton in Norfolk, England. Opened in 1862, the station was the northern terminus of the King's Lynn to Hunstanton line immortalised by John Betjeman in the British Transport Film John Betjeman Goes By Train. The station closed with the line in 1969. The building of the line to Hunstanton coincided with the rising popularity of North-West Norfolk as a destination for holidaymakers who were arriving in large numbers. Hunstanton itself had been promoted as a seaside resort by Henry Styleman Le Strange, lord of the manor and principal landowner, who gifted land and investment towards the construction of the line.show more
