Edward Thorp, known as ‘Chib’, an undertaker from Leigh on Sea, spent his weekends throughout the year visiting the rural railway lines in East Anglia with wife Edna and their dog Micky. Chib always took along his 8mm camera, a good supply of Kodachrome film, and a tape recorder, to document their trips. On this journey Thorp travels from Norwich passing through Salhouse, Wroxham, Worstead, North Walsham, Gunton, Cromer Beach, and West Runton, arriving in Sheringham.
