Arlesey: Site of the former Three Counties railway station
Arlesey: Site of the former Three Counties railway station
The Great Northern Railway was completed through here in 1850 and a station, called Arlesey Siding and named because of the sidings to the nearby brick works, was built here in 1866. With the expansion of the nearby Three Counties Lunatic Asylum the station was renamed Three Counties in 1886. It closed in 1959. Looking at old maps the actual site of the station was about two thirds of the way towards the distant Mill Lane road bridge. This was the site of a fatal railway accident in 1876 when a northbound express passenger train collided with a derailed luggage train.
