Aldeby railway station was a station in Aldeby, in the English county of Norfolk. It was on the line between Great Yarmouth and Beccles; the connection was opened in 1859 when the line from Ipswich to Beccles was extended northwards. It was closed in 1959.

History[edit]

Opened by the East Suffolk, and joining the Great Eastern Railway, it became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. It was then closed by the British Transport Commission.

Present day[edit]

There is a large building on the site and the former course of the railway can be tracked through the fields. As at 2008, the goods yard is now a used car dealership and scrap yard, and as previously noted has several large buildings on the site. The station house is mainly unchanged in outward appearance but is now a private house.
