Poppy Line launches appeal to restore Sheringham’s platform 2

THE North Norfolk Railway (NNR) has mounted a £185,000 appeal to return platform 2 at Sheringham station to the condition it was in when the line was closed by BR in 1967. 

The project will see the long-demolished waiting room building re-instated, together with the wall, which was primarily there to support the canopy, but also forms the front of the station building.

The canopy is not included in the appeal, and the NNR says in due course, another appeal is likely to be held to re-instate the canopy.
