Locating Leeman Road Bridge
At Last We've Been to Croxley Green : part the first
Trains ceased to serve Croxley Green station in 1996, but the signs were still there last Saturday. Bus timetables still refer to the stop as "Croxley Green Two Bridges." But Croxley Green simply isn't there and never has been. But we are ahead of ourselves.
Hemel has more than its fair share of bus "interchanges" and the 352 calls at all four. From the bus station we run via the "original" town centre stops on Marlowes ...
Hemel Hempstead station opened with the line as "Boxmoor". It has also been called "Boxmoor and Hemel Hempstead" (1912–1930) and "Hemel Hempstead and Boxmoor" (1930–1963) For many years, Hemel Hempstead station was almost a junction - a railway embankment on the south (down) side of the station led to the end of the "Nicky Line", a branch line through the town centre to Harpenden. However, due to arguments between the Midland Railway and the London & North Western Railway, no direct connection was made between the two lines. Nicky Line trains terminated at Heath Park Halt.

The juxtaposition of the town centre bus stops is shown in a helpful on-line map.
