The Buntingford Railway and Local History Society

The Society was formed in January 1995 to promote interest in the local history of Buntingford and the surrounding area, and in particular the old railway line called "The Buntingford Branch", but known affectionately as "The Bunt" to those people who worked on the line. The railway maintained an important link for the business and community needs for 101 years, from its opening in July 1863, to its closure in Nov 1964 From Buntingford the railway served the people of Westmill, Braughing, Standon, Hadham, Widford, and Wareside ( the station was known as Mardock) before terminating at St.Margarets station, where it joined the Hertford East to London Liverpool Street line. There were some peak time trains that went straight through to Liverpool Street.
