The Museum of St Albans is holding an exhibition to commemorate and celebrate the ‘Lost Rails’ of Hertfordshire, a number of which are now being used as cycleways, footpaths and bridleways. This project focuses on the heritage of six of these branch lines: the Ayot Greenway, Alban Way, Nicky Line, Ebury Way, Cole Green Way and Buntingford Line.
We would be interested in hearing from anyone who has memories of these routes, either when they were still railways or since they were closed. We are particularly interested in talking to people who worked on the lines, used them to get to work, lived alongside them, or recall any interesting incidents that occurred on them.
If you would like to share your memories, or lend any photographs or other objects associated with these lines to the museum for the exhibition, please contact Rosalyn Goulding at the Museum of St Albans on 01727 819581 or email@example.com, or write to:
The Museum of St Albans, 9a Hatfield Road, St Albans, Herts, AL1 3RR.
This exhibition, postponed from 2009, is now being held from September 2010 at the Museum of St Albans as part of a Heritage Lottery Funded Project and in partnership with Groundwork Hertfordshire.
