The great High Level station at Crystal Palace played an important part in bringing millions of visitors to what was for many years Great Britain’s most popular visitor attraction.
The talk takes place on Monday, November 2, at 11am at Ashburton Library.
Discover who built the railway and why. Learn about its chequered history, including the plans to extend it to South Norwood and Addiscombe. And reflect upon its ultimate fate and what might have been.
Refreshments will be served after the talk, which is being staged at Ashburton Library, Oasis Academy, Shirley Rd, CR9 7AL.
