At one time Lowestoft and Oulton Broad, adjacent communities, had five railway stations. There are still three and two distinct lines, perhaps unusual in this day and age. The walk leaves Oulton Broad North and follows the former line in a cutting to the site of Lowestoft North Station. Descending to the seafront, a fascinating museum and England's most Easterly point, the route soon picks up the old goods station, coal yard and line back to the existing station of Oulton Broad South.

Start at The Wherry Hotel close to the lock joining Oulton Broad and Lake Lothing.
