Wretham & Hockham Gallery 2:
June 1964 - July 2017


In this view to the north in June 1964 Wretham and Hockham’s platform is looking less well cared-for.  A couple of passengers are waiting for a train, not yet signalled.

A Class 03 diesel can be seen in the siding beyond the level crossing at Wretham and Hockham, its train stopped on the running line.  The platform is overgrown so this is probably a photo dating from close to the time of closure in 1964.

Passengers board a two-car Derby Lightweight DMU on a northbound train.  Said to be a photograph of the last train to leave Wretham and Hockham on 12 June 1964 when the line closed.

The scene at Wretham and Hockham looking north from the site of the level crossing in 1971.  The extension to the station house can just be seen on the left. The track bed has been partially infilled leaving an easy step dolwn from the platform.

In 1975, eleven years after closure of Wretham and Hockham station, the level crossing has gone, the trackbed filled in and name-boards removed but outwardly little has changed with the buildings.

A June 1975 view of the station from the A1075 a little way north of the site of the level crossing.  This view of Wretham and Hockham station is now unobtainable due to thick hedges at the roadside.

remains little changed.

The station buildings at Wretham and Hockham are now a house, sympathetically extended to the left where the cars are parked and seen in July 2017.

The platform glimpsed through thick hedging in July 2017. Since the 1987 photograph was taken a name-board has been erected and some ‘heritage’ advertising signs placed on replaced fences.
