The artwork was presented to the station by the Broads Authority and is placed on the walls of the waiting room next to platform one.

The image was created by artist Dave Thompson and takes inspiration from the vintage railway posters of the 1950s.

It was welcomed by journalist Julian Glover, who is leading the Government's review of National Parks.

Chairman of the Broads Authority, Haydn Thirtle, said: 'The Broads might have a strong association with rural locations but they wend their way into the heart of the city of Norwich via the Wensum.
