The Rail Trail Again

Friday 31 August 2018

                        The “Rail Trail”  :  Back by Popular Demand

2018 marks the 150th anniversary of the arrival of our railway service.  This event triggered the rapid growth of Borehamwood and then attracted the studios which have prospered here for over 100 years.

As part of a programme to celebrate this anniversary, in May we held a guided tour of local places associated with the railway.  Led by John Cartledge, the founder of the popular series of “Teddy’s Trails” in association with Elstree & Borehamwood Town Council, the walking tour lasted almost 3 hours and included a special authorised visit to the railway station.

The group’s feedback was very positive (“most interesting”, “material you gave us was first class”, “all very well organised”, “very enjoyable”, “lovely to meet everyone”) and so we will run a second session of the “Rail Trail” on Sunday 7th October, starting at 1:30 sharp at Allum Manor (2 Allum Lane  WD6 3PJ)  Parking is free.

After a short presentation, walkers will receive an extensive information pack before they set off, first to the railway station and then farther afield.  We expect to return to Allum Manor by 5:00.

The group will not exceed 30 people; each walker is responsible for wearing footwear and clothing appropriate to the weather, and for observing all safety rules.  At no time will the group get closer to the railway lines than when standing on the station platforms.
