Lives on the Lines

Greater Anglia

Take an audible journey by train and meet fascinating people living and working across our Great Anglian landscape.

We’ll explore majestic coastlines, the phenomenal wildlife of broads and fens, breathtaking cathedral cities and magical market towns, meeting the people that make East Anglia such a unique and special place to live and visit.

The Community Rail Partnerships invite you to travel six of Greater Anglia’s rural branch rail lines across Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire in this audible adventure.

The railways have connected communities and counties across Britain for nearly two centuries, and that time has seen enormous innovation in the trade, work opportunities and lifestyles of the British people. Rail has tracked our lives through innovation, migration, boom and bust, and today the Greater Anglia rural branch lines connect communities here for work, days out and enjoying the beautiful East Anglian landscape.

Settle in for a listen and enjoy a journey through history, culture, art and nature…. it might just inspire a few adventures of your own!
