A Station At Great Cornard

I can’t find anything about a possible station at the village of Great Cornard.

This is a Google Map of the area.


Note Sudbury station at the top of the map from where the Gainsborough Line turns South along the course of the River Stour towards Bures and Marks Tey.

A single-platform station at Great Cornard would seem to be a feasible proposition from an engineering point of view.

It could provide a valuable commuter and leisure route to Colchester and London, especially, if as I suspect Greater Anglia will run trains between Sudbury and Colchester Town via Marks Tey and Colchester.

The train company are probably analysing various scenarios concerning a new station at Great Cornard.
