Attlebridge railway station is a closed station in Norfolk, England. It was constructed by the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway in the 1880s on the line between Melton Constable and Norwich City. It was closed to passengers in 1959 (It is now a B&B, caravan site and home to Hartwood Furniture). It served the small village of Attlebridge.[1][2]

History[edit]

Opened by the Lynn and Fakenham Railway, it became a Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway station. During the Grouping of 1923 it converted to a joint operation of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway and the London and North Eastern Railway with the latter taking sole operation in 1936.

The station then passed on to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948, and was closed by the British Transport Commission.
