Many thanks to Graham at the Drone People in King's Lynn, whose footage above inspired me to start this project in the first place.
In 1883, authorities granted permission to load and offload horses at the station and cattle pens were eventually built. As the coal and sand industries developed, a siding was built for Bagge, a local merchant and this featured a siding and head-shunt. There was a sandpit which was believed to be connected by a 2 foot narrow gauge railway. J Boam & Sons dominated the sand traffic trade in the area.
