Mist on the Great Northern


Misty sky over Welwyn North Station,  Hertfordshire,  January 2017


This Grade 2 listed station, and the vital viaduct that enables the connection of London to the north, were built between 1850 and 1865, as part of the Great Northern Railway.  It is a great example of the architecture of the early railway days, constructed from locally produced red brick from the Welwyn Brick Fields at Ayot Green.

And there’s a charming little coffee shop offering friendly service and great coffee.
