An illustrated guided walk tracing the route of the Nickey Line is being led by railway enthusiast Roger Green on Saturday, June 27, starting at 10am at bus stop B outside Hemel Hempstead Railway Station. You must pre-register by calling Mr Green on 01442 257030, or email

The Nickey Line currently starts at the Midland Road, Hemel Hempstead, but originally it started from the old Boxmoor Station, the section in between having been lost to development.

Mr Green is leading the leisurely walk, with old photographs, tracing the route of the original line. This is a fascinating walk and recommended to all who are interested in the line.

There is a shorter three-mile route, ending at the Midland pub for lunch, or a longer five-mile walk in the afternoon completing the circuit back to the start point.
