Empty spaces at rail stations across East Anglia are being offered to local communities.

As stations have evolved over the years, unused or under-utilised rooms have become available and many have the potential to be used as community assets.

Stations at Burnham-on-Crouch, Lowestoft and Reedham have successful schemes where station buildings have been reborn with a new purpose for a new era.

Now Greater Anglia is offering them out to groups who can make the best use of them.

At Reedham, the team of station adopters has created a museum in a disused room, while the station building at Burnham-on-Crouch is used by local artists. A tourist information office has been created in one of the disused rooms at Lowestoft station.

Some of the rooms at stations being offered are at Great Yarmouth, Norwich, Acle, Attleborough, Lowestoft, Bury St Edmunds, Lakenheath and Thetford.
