The Road Through Harpenden

by Chris Reynolds


The Last Coaches to Harpenden

Herts Advertiser 16 April 1864

As the railway network expanded the stage coaches disappeared, and as St Albans was late in getting in on the main line trains there was a horse-drawn Omnibus to meet the trains at Harpenden. This journey between St Albans and Harpenden was discontinued when the railway arrived in town.
