Upwell

Upwell

[uhp-wel]
Upwell is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk.

Upwell lies on the A1101 road, the nearest towns being Wisbech to its north-west and Downham Market to its east. It was a place of note in British railway history as the rural tramway, the Wisbech and Upwell Tramway lasted as a freight line until 1966; although it had succumbed to bus competition for passenger traffic as early as 1927.

Administratively, Upwell forms part of the district of King's Lynn and West Norfolk. Until 1974 it formed part of the now-defunct Wisbech Rural District.
