If only it was a panoramic photo I could pan right and see if there's an Halfords store there or not!

    Ah ha! I knew it! Exactly where it should be. My detective-fu is strong today! There used to be three stations in Norwich apparently. The roundabout here is the site of one that, I believe, was the branch line to Kings Lynn. The London line used to go to a station that is now the site of a Sainsburys store in the City center. And the third still stands. Fascinating. Right along that walk you can see a lot of remains from the Beeching Act. They've only recently cleared the platform you can see on the left there. I was wondering what was going on.
