Leagrave station, just north of Luton in Bedfordshire, serves the small suburb on the Midland Main Line between Harlington and Luton. Built in 1868, Leagrave's station buildings were carefully restored in the 1980s, before a large-scale modernisation of the station in 2011, which retained the listed, original red-brick buildings of the 1800s but added ticket barriers and converted some of the former windows into doorways. The busy commuter station sees 1.8 million passengers a year carried on the four trains per hour to both Bedford and Brighton, with the latter travelling via Luton Airport, St Albans, London (just 35 minutes away), Gatwick Airport and Burgess Hill. Additional services leave the station for Kent and Three Bridges. Despite being a suburb of the largely residential Luton, Leagrave is within walking distance of several large open spaces. The nearby Chiltern Hills are a designated Area of Natural Beauty and treat visitors to lush fields, beautiful woodland and winding rivers.
