The Cromer Tunnel

Remnants of the long-defunct Cromer Beach - Mundesley railway line, running beneath the (also long gone) Cromer High - Norwich line. The railway services, as well as the writings of Clement Scott, are often attributed as the reason for Cromer's increasing popularity as a holiday resort during the nineteenth century. Nowadays Cromer is served only by the Bittern Line service, which runs from Norwich to Sheringham.

This is the only remaining former railway tunnel in Norfolk, and surrounded by overgrown and litter-strewn embankments.
