History

Thetford station was once also the terminus for a branch to Swaffham. The next station along the line was Roudham Junction. The line was closed in 1964 as part of the Beeching Axe. Another branch ran south to Bury St Edmunds calling at the town's other station Thetford Bridge. This closed to passengers in 1953.
