Wymondham Abbey railway station is a railway station in the town of Wymondham in the English county of Norfolk. The station is served by heritage services operated by the Mid-Norfolk Railway (MNR) between Wymondham and East Dereham.

History[edit]

Wymondham Abbey railway station, opened in 1999,[1] is the current southern terminus of passenger services on the MNR, although the line continues beyond Wymondham Abbey to a junction with the Breckland Line at Wymondham railway station. The two stations are about a mile apart and passengers wishing to interchange with local services operated by East Midlands Trains and Greater Anglia on the Breckland Line need to make their own way between the two stations by walking about 1.3km through the town centre. Volunteers conducted some refurbishment of the station by replacing boards forming the platform surface during January 2013. There is minimal car parking at this station, therefore visitors are advised to use parking facilities in Wymondham town centre or make use of the car park at Dereham.
