New signage with more accurate information for visitors to the Norfolk Broads has been installed at a gateway station.
Working with volunteers, who make up the station adopter team and train operator Greater Anglia, the Bittern Line Community Rail Partnership added extra signage at Hoveton and Wroxham station.
It will now be easier for visitors to access pathways to the village centre, riverside park, amenities and longer walks. In addition, the signs include routes to the boatyards, toilet facilities and the narrow-gauge Bure Valley Railway.
About 700,000 journeys a year are undertaken on the Bittern Line, which runs from Norwich to Cromer and Sheringham.
Partnership chairman Peter Mayne said; 'We are delighted to unveil our new signage which provides more accurate information to visitors, encouraging people to explore local amenities and tourist attractions and the fabulous walking routes towards Aylsham and to Horning via the Three Rivers Way.'
