Leighton Buzzard: Narrow gauge railway
Stonehenge Works on the railway viewed looking southwards with Mile Tree Road on the left. This is the current northern terminus of the railway although the track does continue for about another 500 metres northwards. The railway was originally built in 1919 to carry sand from nearby quarries to the now dismantled Leighton Buzzard to Dunstable standard gauge railway line close to Page's Park. It closed as an industrial line in 1969, but was taken over by volunteers to be run as a heritage railway. The railway has a very informative website here LinkExternal link
