New information boards are revealing Sudbury’s “rich and fascinating history” to visitors to the town by rail.
The history boards at Sudbury Train Station have been funded and installed by the Essex and South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership in conjunction with train operator Greater Anglia.
Community rail officer Jayne Sumner said: “We wanted to provide some interesting information about the town to encourage people to visit some of the area’s attractions - such as the Gainsborough museum - and provide them with food for thought while they wait for trains.
“The area has such a rich and fascinating history and this is a great way to put people in touch with it the minute they arrive by train, providing lots of inspiration about what to see and do.”
Greater Anglia’s community partnerships manager Paul Haynes added: “The boards provide a great link between the rail station and the town and are full of interesting information, which makes the station a great start to exploring the town.”
The Essex and South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership works with Greater Anglia, Essex County Council and other local organisations to help keep rural rail lines thriving for the benefit of local communities.
