Watlington | Magdalen Road To Wisbech
The Bramley Line
Welcome to Norfolks disused railway's page of Magdalen Road-Watlington to Wisbech line.
Open from 1848 to 1968.
Please forgive me as this site is Norfolks disused and this line ends just outside norfolk.
Watlington signal box in 2020 what still carries the network south style name Magdalen road what the station was called until 1989
The other pictures show the station remains in there original design of two platforms facing one another
This line also ran from Wisbech to march until closure in 2000 to freight and passengers in 1968 even though the line is closed a lot of the track still remains please click here on the lines out side Norfolk page for the rest of the Bramley line
The next two pictures are taken from the side of the station where roughly the old track bed would of been leaving Magdalen Road towards Wisbech
Here we see an Aerial shot taken just by the first railway bridge remain.In the distance you can see the tree line curve round to the left and watlington village to the rear of this photo
Just after the first here we see where the line would of crossed the river ouse and stow road and headed off to marsh land saint James
Next after we leave Magdalen Road heading towards Wisbech we cross 4 bridges two are still there and two are just small remains of the former bridges
number one crosses the river ouse relief channel and still in use as public footpath
number two is just brick remains crossing the river ouse
number three are brick remains crossing stow road -vehicle road
and number 4 a still used bridge used by farm land access by public foot path and trust me its a long walk
please look at the google map coverage I done for rough track lay out and bridge positions
Bridge number one crossing the river Ouse relief channel
Bridge number two crossing the river ouse
Bridge number three crossing Stow road
Bridge number 4 crossing the middle level main drain

Many thanks for looking.This is a old picture of Wisbech station I sourced via the internet.Sadly today there are no Remains at all of Wisbech Station.
After Wisbech the line carried on out side norfolk on the Bramley line to March and even though the line is closed the bed and even the rails in lots of parts still remain and there is major backing for this to be reopened..please feel free to look at my other lines page seen here for coverage up to March and March Station.
