Originally, Apsley station was opened in 1938 to serve the paper-making village on the banks of the Gade and Bulbourne rivers, but the rapid development of the surrounding area following WW2 soon saw Apsley swallowed by the New Town of Hemel Hempstead. Now it is one of two stations in the town, with regular services to London Euston and Tring, and additional services north to Birmingham New Street, Coventry and Crewe. Near Marlowes shopping precinct and the Riverside shopping centre, Apsley station is to the south of Hemel Hempstead's town centre, but it's a pleasant a thirty-minute walk or a fifteen-minute bus ride to get there. Some traces of Apsley's history, including the Paper Trail at Frogmore Paper Mill, can be found close to the railway. This is the only 19th-century paper mill still standing in the town and is home to an exhibition about paper during the Industrial Revolution.

Station details & facilities

Apsley station has four platforms, but the majority of services use platform 3 (Tring) or platform 4 (London Euston). The station buildings, with ticket office, waiting room and toilets, stands alongside platform 4, and this is the only platform with step-free access. The others are reached via a footbridge. The railway station bus stop is a short walk beyond the car park to London Road, and buses for Hemel Hempstead town centre leave every twenty minutes during the day.
