Whitwell Station renews bid to extend railway line to Lenwade

The Whitwell & Reepham Preservation Society has renewed efforts to re-lay track on the old track bed running from Whitwell Station to Lenwade.

The Society has now launched a petition that seeks to clarify the term “railway land” pertaining to the Lynn and Fakenham Railways Act of 1876-1881.
The heritage railway group wants the UK government to confirm that there is an Act of Parliament still in force for the land to be used as a railway and, if this is the case, to clarify who has preference over the land.
The petition can be signed HERE
