Welcome to the Bringing the History of Smallford Station to Life project homepage. Here you will find all the latest information about the project, workshops and activities associated with the project in one handy place. Please feel free to comment about articles. Celebrating 150 years of Smallford Station 1865 – 2015. This project is funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund.
The Smallford Station Project would like to respectfully pay tribute to Ron Kingdon (1920-2016) – Local Transport/History, Photography & Cine Film Enthusiast – who has sadly passed away. Ron showed kindness and enthusiasm for the project and generously shared his footage of the station, filmed in 1968 (click to view). Our thoughts are with his family.
