Village celebrates rail station’s 100th birthday
AN exhibition celebrating the 100th anniversary of the opening of a Times Territory rail station begins next week.
On April 4, 1910, a train pulled into what was then Cuffley and Goffs Oak rail station for the first time, following the extension of the so-called “Hertford Loop” on the Great Northern Railway (GNR) line.
Now simply called Cuffley rail station (the name was changed in 1971), residents will be marking the occasion with a series of events and discussions, starting on Tuesday.
The celebrations will start on April 6 at 10.30am, when a commemorative plaque is unveiled at the station booking office.
It will be followed with the official opening of the exhibition at Cuffley library by Northaw and Cuffley Parish Council chair Marjorie Reeve at 11am.
