Cromer Tunnel
East Runton Viaduct

Welcome to Norfolks Disused Railways

Cromer Tunnel & East Runton viaduct page.

This page was photographed in July 2021 

Norfolks only standard gauge railway tunnel in the county of Norfolk.

The tunnel Connected up the Sheringham to Mundesley services over the top of the tunnel & Underneath the Cromer High to North Walsham & Norwich railway lines.

 

Cromer High station opened on the 26th of March in 1877

Cromer High Station closed on the 20th September 1954 to passengers & to freight 7th March 1960

Even though the railway has long gone the tunnel still survives in brilliant condition in 2021 .There is usuall graffiti to be expected but from what I could see there is no structural damage to be seen.

Inside the tunnel I was surprised how dark it was for such a short tunnel

In side and also there still survives a mortar spigot left behind from the war days.

Also surviving in the tunnel and the A149 bridge are what looks like line wire carriers down on the floor level.

Also just by Cromer Tunnel it a old railway bridge that now carries the A149 Norwich Road over the top & to the side a new modern foot path crossing has also been built
