Harpenden East railway station

Harpenden East railway station

Harpenden East was one of two stations serving the town of Harpenden, the other station which remains open being Harpenden Central. Originally named Harpenden, the East suffix was added in 1950 to distinguish from the Midland Railway station.

An intermediate station on the Great Northern Railway branch line between Hatfield and Dunstable Town, it opened in 1860 and closed in 1965.

Since closure the station has been demolished and both the site and the line in the immediate area have had housing built.
