Ouse Bridge railway station was a railway station in Norfolk, England.

History[edit]

The Lynn and Ely Railway (L&ER) had opened between King's Lynn and Downham on 27 October 1846.[1] On 25 October 1847, the line was extended to Ely; but in the meantime, on 22 July 1847, the L&ER had amalgamated with the Lynn and Dereham Railway and the Ely and Huntingdon Railway to form the East Anglian Railway.[2] The station was opened with the line to Ely, and was originally named Ouze Bridge.[3] It was approximately half-way between Denver and Hilgay Fen, which opened at the same time.

The station was renamed Ouse Bridge in April 1854, and closed on 1 January 1864.[3]
