Flitwick station lies on the Midland Main Line, serving the small Bedfordshire towns of Flitwick and Ampthill. Built in 1870 as part of the Midland Railway's extension of the line to St Pancras, Flitwick's original station building stood relatively untouched for nearly 100 years before undergoing a major restoration in 1960. Today, the station runs regular services north to Bedford and south to Luton, Brighton, St. Albans, London St Pancras, Harpenden and Gatwick Airport. The town of Flitwick lies on the banks of the River Flit. It's a predominantly residential area, but the small town centre - a short walk from the station - has a few high street names. For the more traditional shopper, there is an open-air market every Friday, with a variety of stalls, including a fishmonger, baker, haberdashery and grocer. Flitwick Moor, a 60-hectare nature reserve, is just to the east of town, about 10 minutes' walk from the station.
