Station Name: BURWELL

This view, circa early 1970s is not easy to orientate initially. The house visible behind the two striped posts still stands today and is on Swaffham Road, south of the former railway line. The station building would have been where the Tillotson's van stands and the platforms would have run left to right across the centre of the picture but at an angle to Swaffham Road. The coaches were presumably staff transport. Tillotson's once ran their own staff transport including a 1949 Bedford OB, GDL 102, which had begun life on the Isle of Wight,
