BLH&MS talk on 19 Feb 2020
The Railway Comes to Tring, by Ian Petticrew.
The talk looks (in brief) at how the London & Birmingham Railway came to be built: the route as originally proposed – and as eventually constructed; civil engineering along the line from Euston to Tring; early train services and the Railway’s impact on stage coach services, the Sparrows Herne Turnpike and the canal.
Meeting begins at 8pm in the Wellcome Great Hall, Town Hall, Berkhamsted. Visitors are always welcome @ £3 at the door.
