On a damp morning at the end of March, a group of 12 project members visited HALS (Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies, based at County hall in Hertford).  This was our first group visit to an archive to explore and research the history of Smallford Station, the Hatfield St Albans branch line that it served and the impact these had on local communities.

We were accompanied by Helen Tyler, a PhD student at The University of Hertfordshire and Lucy Hargrave who works at The National Archives in Kew.

Feedback was very positive and future visits are planned.

You can read more about the findings made on the day via the forum here.

You can view the documents from the archives on this forum here, which includes maps of the area.
