*We shall be concentrating our efforts for the Heritage Open Days on celebrating the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Midland Railway's 'London Extension' in 1868. We already have a photo display covering as much as possible of 150 years of the railway through St Albans.
We are also co-operating with Elstree and Borehamwood Museum - they are running an exhibition late January-late July 2018 looking at the development of the area brought about by the coming of the railway.
