    Wells and Walsingham Light Railway
    Visit the longest 10╝" narrow gauge steam railway in the world and see the unique Garratt locomotive "Norfolk Hero" which was especially built for this line.

    A great adventure for all the family in the delightful countryside of the North Norfolk coast.

    Enjoy our timetable service from the seaside and harbour town of Wells to the picturesque town of Walsingham, famed for centuries as a centre of pilgrimage. A scenic journey with five bridges through lovely countryside. Halts at Warham St Mary and Wighton. With the regular service you have ample time to explore Walsingham with its shops, restaurants and inns as well as the famous shrine before catching the train back. Evening charter trains are also bookable.

    Our main station at Wells has a charming restored signal box where refreshments and souvenirs are available. The unique Garratt steam locomotive was built in 1986 specially for the line.

    The Wells & Walsingham Light Railway was born out of one man's passionate dream, hard work and sheer determination. Lt. Cmdr. Roy Francis ( pictured left ) had already built the mile long 10╝" gauge Beach railway at Wells. In 1979 he started to construct the WWLR on the four miles of old Great Eastern track bed from Wells to Walsingham. Work was completed in 1982 and on 6th April services began on schedule making it the longest 10╝" narrow gauge steam railway in the world.
