North Norfolk Holiday Towns Lose Train Service 1983

11 mins United Kingdom

In 1969 the railway at Hunstanton closed, causing a decline in visits by holidaymakers who now have to travel by bus or car, which takes twice as long. In 1983, another Norfolk holiday town, Sheringham, is at risk of losing its train service with concerns of suffering the same fate as Hunstanton. A Local Action Committee has been set up to emphasise the necessity of the line to Sheringham. Anglia Television reports.

The East Anglian Film Archive, the first and largest Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), to support research and work to preserve our moving image heritage. More than 250 hours are freely available online as examples of the wide range of film which attracts interest the world over.
