Cambridge station, and the line from Cambridge to Bishop’s Stortford, have celebrated their 175th birthday.
The station’s first brick was laid back on the 10th April in 1845, and the new line to Bishop’s Stortford and Cambridge station opened three months later on the 29th July 1845.
Initially serving Bishopsgate station in London, the line to Norwich opened a day later.
Outside of London, Cambridge was the busiest station on Greater Anglia’s network before the Coronavirus outbreak.
Today, Cambridge has direct trains to London Kings Cross and London Liverpool Street, Stansted Airport, Ipswich, Norwich, Kings Lynn, Peterborough, Leicester and Birmingham.
Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia’s Director of Asset Management, commented, “Cambridge station has seen many changes in its long history and in that time has really gone from strength to strength.
“Thanks to our continued investment in improving customer facilities and careful attention to the building’s upkeep it continues to be a stunning example of a heritage railway building fit for the needs of passengers in the 21st century.”
