CN Station

Trains were very important in the early history of Norwich. The 1876 map shows the Brantford, Norwich and Port Burwell Railway ran diagonally across South and North Norwich Townships.  The Canada Southern Railway crossed South Norwich and was featured in the book Blaine's Way by Monica Hughes. CN Station
The Port Burwell and Lake Huron Railway junction was in the west end of the town of Norwich.  From there it went south to the east edge of Otterville then southeast to approach the Canadian Southern at concession 11 near Hawtrey.  The station was torn down in the 1940's. The photo shows the station at Norwich Junction, south and west of the village.
