Railway heritage grant to improve Attleborough station building

Wednesday, 20 December 2017

A south Norfolk railway station building is set to be renovated following a grant from the Railway Heritage Trust.

Attleborough station building will be restored internally and externally, following a £40,000 grant.

Work is due to start next year on the Grade II listed building, which is on the Norwich-bound platform.

James Reeve, Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager, said: “We are very grateful to the Railway Heritage Trust for this grant, which will help restore the building at Attleborough station.

“During our current franchise we will invest nearly £60 million in stations and we are committed to improving the communities which we serve. Once the work at Attleborough is complete, we will look for a new tenant to use the building.”

In total, the project is set to cost around £160,000 with the remaining £120,000 being funded by Greater Anglia. Work will include repairing the building and creating a space which will be leased to a local business.
