Smallford Station is the next stop on restoring the Alban Way after St Albans council completed a series of improvements.

Several platforms along the 6.5-mile path have been restored with new signage, fencing and gates. The route was also resurfaced, access steps were installed and the Smallford station car park has also been renovated.

St Albans council’s environment portfolio holder Frances Leonard said: “These improvements to the Alban Way go a long to ensuring users are able to enjoy the route and its heritage for years to come.

“The work does not stop however. A new Greenspace Action Plan for the Alban Way is about to be developed for the next five years and later this year we will be inviting the public to put forward further improvements.”

The Smallford Station and Alban Way Heritage Society will now begin creating a heritage centre at the ticket office.
