Plans to turn a 100-year-old railway carriage near the Norfolk-Suffolk border into holiday accommodation have been submitted.
The application to turn the former railway carriage into a holiday let in Wortham has been sent to Mid Suffolk District Council.
The carriage is located at Willowdale, on Low Road. It is already on the land and has previously been used for storage.
Documents accompanying the application say that is likely to date from around 1900, but the roof has been reinforced since then.
The documents also point out that in the early 20th century disused railway carriages were often lived in – which may be how the carriage came to be there.
