Many thanks to Andy f for the use of this image of the bridge remains that carried the m&gnr railway over the Kings Lynn to Dereham line.What is now used as freight use for sand trains as far as Middleton Towers.This remain can be seen from the a149 Kings Lynn in-between the QE Hospital roundabout and the Hardwick roundabout.Sadly since this bridge had been seriously covered in graffiti
Gayton Road bridge at Bawsey park pmy271
Gayton Road railway station remains in 2020
Gayton Road station is in Bawsey just out side of King's Lynn by the Queen Elizabeth hospital.When open there were two platforms here and was below the currant road level and Gayton passed over the line by road bridge.All that remains now are parts of the two platforms and what looks part of the shelter.All the buildings from Gayton Road have gone.So has the bridge.
This old station remain is luckly hidden up so the graffiti levels are low
Gayton Road station 2021
In march 2021 I decided to head back to Gayton Road remains.Having passed these many times and looking from the road seeing them I finally made it back whilst they were not over grown or to wet to reach.
in-between Gayton Road and Grimston road the line ran through a now waste management company Baco compak.the land here has been built up as the railway station remains of Gayton Road are below road level.The skip storage road is roughly where the line ran leaving Gayton Road railway station on route to Grimston road station in Roydon.The fence post seen in first picture was taken up the embankment between Baco compak and the sand boy public house in Bawsey
Old railway line now used as skip storage.This roadway has been built up since the line closed the embankments can still be seen to the sides
After the waste management yard we come to this old remain going over the Gaywood river.The bridge number for this is unknown
Seen here is the approach to the Gaywood river bridge with what can just be seen seen looks like a old sleeper in the field.If this is part of the old railway of added after I not sure
What remains of the old Gaywood river bridge
The Gaywood bridge with a fence remain seen here please excuse this picture the fence remain is not bent I used my gopro to take this picture and it fisheyes some parts of the photograph
