Melton station lies on the Ipswich to Lowestoft East Suffolk Line, serving the village of Melton in Suffolk. The station originally opened in 1859 before closing - seemingly for good - in 1955. However, after much public pressure the station was given a new lease of life 1984. Since then, Melton has operated regular hourly services to both Ipswich and Lowestoft from its single platform. The station is just outside the quaint village centre, which is home to a colourful mix of independent shops and stunning 18th century architecture. Look out for St. Andrew's church, which looks over the town from Station Road and hosts a number of cultural and social events throughout the year. For a pleasant local walk, head to the footpaths along the River Deben - turn right out of the station and look out for the Melton Riverside car park, just a few minutes' walk away.
