Brundall in Norfolk is a large Broadland village
about seven miles east of Norwich off the road to
Yarmouth. It is on the River Yare and has two
railway stations. The population was a mere 63
in 1836 but once Norfolk’s first railway was opened
in 1844 it grew over the years to the approximately
5,000 that it is today. Click on 'Brundall
