The Old Salvation Army Halt Station, St Albans
The Old Salvation Army Halt Station, St Albans
Located on the 'Alban Way' cycle and footpath are the remains of the passenger platform of the long disused 'Salvation Army Halt' station. Photographed looking Southwest. The name came from the Salvation Army printing works on Campfield Road. The station was part of the St Albans to Hatfield Railway which closed to passengers in 1951 and freight in 1964. It was also known as 'Sander's Siding' after Sander's Orchids on Camp Road and whose siding was behind the photographer.
