About Stowmarket station

Stowmarket railway station is on the Great Eastern Main Line (GEML) in the East of England, serving the town of Stowmarket, Suffolk. It is 80 miles 46 chains (129.7 km) down-line from London Liverpool Street and is situated between Needham Market to the south and Diss to the north. It is also the junction where the Ipswich to Ely Line joins the GEML. Its three-letter station code is SMK.

The station was opened by the Ipswich & Bury Railway in 1846 with red brick main buildings in a flamboyant Jacobean manner by Frederick Barnes. The buildings, which were Grade II listed in 1972, were restored in 1987.

The line through the station was electrified in 1985.

The event is from 0730hrs - 0800hrs

There's five free 20 minute parking spaces adjacent to the meet - otherwise I recommend you park elsewhere in the town and walk down, as parking is very expensive and an all-day rate.
