Welcome to the Wherry Lines Community Railways. We are a partnership of the rail industry, local authorities, parish councils, rail users, station adopters and local businesses. The Partnership was formed by Norfolk County Council and Anglia Railways. Additional funding partners have joined and funds raised are used to promote the railway and the surrounding area to develop economic and environmental benefits for residents, visitors and tourists. We are supported by The Department for Transport and the National Community Rail organisation ACoRP.

Wherry Lines Train

The Wherry Lines Railways can transport you from the magnificent city of Norwich to the Lively East Coast resorts of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft through the Eastern section of the Norfolk Broads and along the rivers Wensum, Waveney and Yare.

The name of the 'Wherry Lines' railway routes recognises the important role once played by the Norfolk Wherries, which prior to road and rail developments, were the main transport around the broads and rivers in this area of Norfolk for trade and people.
