Norfolks disused railways aerial views
Welcome to wwwnorfolksdisusedrailways.com aerial coverage page of various Norfolks closed railway remains page.
Some of the aerial shots here are used from the
Kings Lynn to Hunstanton Railway
what is covered in great depth on the sister site.
All videos seen here are taken with a hubsan Zeno pro drone and sadly due to lots of the land built over I cant understandably fly a drone in these areas.
I also have a caa flyer drone id and all videos pictures are not made for resale .The flights I made were not taken off from near anyone of anyones property all have been flown from the middle of fields.
To my knowledge according to the app I was at the legal height.
If anyone has privacy issues or any height issues please mail me and ill remove
many thanks to www.bensound.com for the backing music used on these videos
thanks once again
KINGS LYNN TO HUNSTANTON RAILWAY
Here we see the wonderful Wolferton Royal Station on the Kings Lynn Hunstanton Railway.From above This picture was not taken by by but donated by a very good friend of mine.
As seen in the bottom right hand corner of this picture you can see Wolferton Royal Station and even in 2020 you can see the line where the Railway track between the Station and the church and then off to North Wootton
Here we see a aerial shot from the Kings Lynn Hunstanton Railway.This shot was taken from a field next door to the pine cones caravan park in September 2020.As you can see you can still see here the tree line where the line used to run now covered in trees through Dersingham bog.You can walk this part and the bed is surprisingly intact but in small parts you will argue with a couple of bushes but is passable from Wolferton to Dersingham a149 bypass
Here we stand in the same field as the last picture and here see where the line would of ran when open.Now a very Different scene in 2020.
The bottom right hand corner of the picture.To the left hand side of the a149 by pass was where the line ran pre Bypass and on towards the now 1990s plus Mountbatten housing estate and ran down the side of the embankment And into Dersingham Station seen not as very good Quality as the station was a long way away but can be made out to the top 1/3rd of this picture.You can follow the tree line in just before Dersingham Station on The Kings Lynn Hunstanton disused Railway
Here in this picture seen are the line remains in 2020 .Seen in the distance is Ingoldisthorpe crossing.This picture was taken in a field facing forwards Dersingham/ingoldisthorpe crossing.
These two shots were taken from a field in Snettisham away from housing and public but please again if anyone has any privacy issues please email with any concerns and I will remove or blur out and pictures with out any hesitation.
Here we see the approach to Snettisham Station from the disused lost Kings Lynn Hunstanton Railway in Norfolk in September 2020.
You can see Snettisham station just behind the trees roughly in the middle of these pictures and also seen is some of the old station buildings.Also seen is the sidings new built estate built on Snettisham sidings
After the station also can be seen are the new built houses by the A149 what would now need another crossing having crossed at Dersingham side to before Dersingham station.
Once the line would of crossed the new built a149 bypass you see Snettisham beach road in its new format changed during the a149 construction here at Snettisham.In the distance you see the Crossing cottage in the distance then the line went to the right round ken hill and off to Heacham
This video was taken from just by Ken hill woods in Snettisham.
Not far after the beach road level crossing.As you can see here the line was always single and to this day September 2020 the line is clear and the bed is still there.Where you can see the road turn sharp right is a access road for the farmer leading to Snettisham beach road.
The line curves to the left up going down by the side of the beach road and as seen in this drone footage the line embankments are still there.And the line is clear at this part.
Thanks for looking
Here we can see the line remains from ken hill looking towards Snettisham station hidden behind ken hill woods.In the far distance the tree line is there where the line went off to ingoldisthorpe crossing and then onto Dersingham and Kings Lynn
Next from ken Hill again we head off looking to Heacham station.This video was taken with my Hubsan zino prob drone in September 2020.
Starting by the old railway ruin building at Snettisham facing torwards Heacham on the closed Kings Lynn Hunstanton Railway.
This video shows the line remains going off towards heacham and if you can see in the distance the start of the caravan parks and where the line is only clear until Heacham south beach.Far in the distance hunstanton can be seen but not very clear

Magdalen Road to Wisbech-Aerial views
Welcome to www.norfolksdisusedrailways.com Magdalen Road-Watlington station to Wisbech aerial views site.
Sadly due to a lot of the area going through fen land there is either no aerial photography to take or Wisbech side the area has been over built so this segment is concentrated on the bridge area just out side Watlington Station in Norfolk
Still used as the fen line Kings Lynn to Ely,Cambridge,London kings cross-liverpool street services.In the film you will see I was stood by the first bridge and facing towards Watlington Village in the distance.You can still see here Where the line curved off towards the left Before Watlington.The second segment is the first railway bridge
Still remaining I'm amazing condition and used as part of a public foot path
Where the second bridge stood but now demolished.
All that remains are the two plinths at either end.
