Catch the Train At The Station. - Weekends and Wednesdays (Summer only) The Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust was established in 1995 with the aim of buying the then-disused line between the Norfolk market towns of Dereham and Wymondham, and restoring regular passenger services for the first time since the line closed in 1969. We currently own 28km (17.5 miles) of track and trackbed through central Norfolk's most attractive countryside, making us one of the largest preserved railways in the UK today. Please contact us for web site details.
Railway Fishing Lakes
Behind the Station - Walking Distance. Railway Lake is a 60-peg spoon-shaped water only 10 minutes from the main site at Barford and has been developed with silver fish anglers specifically in mind. As a result, it is stocked with roach, rudd, quality bream, tench, chub, skimmers and some small carp. As a result of the mix of fish, it is expected rapidly to become a top class winter fishery, which is being used predominantly for matches. Although Railway Lake is a predominantly a silver fish water, small carp were introduced at the end of September 2001 to keep the water coloured and to combat the tightly shoaling silver fish. However, to enable anglers to keep to using light tackle when fishing for all species, the carp will be kept below the 4lbs mark.
