Deepdale Podcast – North Norfolk Railway (The Poppy Line) & Wroxham Barns – April 2024 🎧

Hello and welcome to the Deepdale Podcast. Thanks for listening to our little slice of North Norfolk life. We hope that you are managing to enjoy the wonders of Spring somewhere beautiful, and that the weather is giving you both time outdoors and excuses to enjoy a local hostelry or café.

This month Jason headed East from Deepdale into North Norfolk to visit two of the premier attractions in this beautiful part of the world – North Norfolk Railway and Wroxham Barns. Both are long standing parts of the local tourism industry and it was great to find out more about their offering and history. And there are a few items of news to start.

Enjoy the listen and we hope to see you on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast again soon.

Thanks for listening to the Deepdale Podcast, produced by the team at Deepdale Camping & Rooms, Deepdale Farm and Dalegate Market in Burnham Deepdale on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast.

Wroxham Barns

Ian and Jason sat down for a cuppa in the Wroxham Barns tea rooms, to chat about how a collection of businesses and cute animals found their home in the Norfolk Broads.
