About Denver Station
Denver railway station (originally opened as Denver Road Gate) was a station in Denver, Norfolk on the Great Eastern Railway route between King's Lynn and Cambridge, commonly known as the Fen Line. It was also the beginning of a small branch to Stoke Ferry.
The Lynn and Ely Railway (L&ER) had opened between King's Lynn and Downham on 27 October 1846.Two months later, on New Years Day 1847, the Lynn & Ely Railway was extended to Denver Road Gate Station. On 25 October 1847, the line was extended to Ely; but in the meantime, on 22 July 1847, the L&ER had amalgamated with the Lynn and Dereham Railway and the Ely and Huntingdon Railway to form the East Anglian Railway. The station was opened with the line to Ely. It closed on 1 February 1870, re-opened on 1 July 1885, and finally closed on 22 September 1930.
