near to Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

Site of "Silkingrad" railway station.
Site of "Silkingrad" railway station.
The proposal to build a new town at Stevenage was not well received by the locals. On the occasion of the visit to the site by the Minister for Town and Country Planning, Lewis Silkin, in the late 1940s, locals re-painted the sign on the railway station "Silkingrad" to greet him. The station is now further south in the heart of the new town at TL234240. The industrial units are typical railside industry trading in hardware, stationery, building materials, etc, etc.
