John Betjeman Goes By Train (1962)
Produced in conjunction with the BBC
10 minutes

From King's Lynn through the wide, flat fields of Norfolk to the unique, half timbered, unpostered station of Wolferton, the station for Sandringham. Then through a land of 'red farms and flint churches' standing 'amongst the silver birches' to Snettisham, with its name cut in a box hedge. And so to Hunstanton and the sea : an unusual and enchanting journey, illuminated by John Betjeman's engaging personality.
