Sporle railway station was located on the line between Swaffham and Dunham.[2] It opened with the line in 1847 and was temporarily the terminus of the line from Swaffham while building works were being completed towards Dereham (the next section of the line opening the following year[3]). The station served the parish of Sporle with Palgrave and was short-lived - the station closed three years after opening in 1850.
