Default Two disused stations in Suffolk

Hi Team,

Visited Clare Castle Country Park today and on my way, I passed Cockfield Station:

Cockfield Station on the Bury St. Edmunds - Sudbury line, closed 19/04/1965 and used for solid fuel storage. I met the site's owner who aslo showed me the site of the signal box, but it was just too hot to photograph it today!

Then onto Clare Castle Country Park of which Clare Station, formerly on the Sudbury-Haverhill line, closed 06/03/1967, forms the centrepiece:

The Station House was the Park Rangers house, but local authority cutbacks have taken their toll and the building and shelter are now boarded up.

A short walk east to the bridge over the trackbed still with the white background for a signal.

West of the station below the castle ruins is the Goods Shed, now used as the Visitors Centre and is home to a BR 12ton van that occasionally sees daylight!

New Walmington Pier
It sticks out by half a mile.
