Trains to Welwyn North

The village of Welwyn in Hertfordshire has a brief association with Vincent van Gogh - a blue plaque on a building on Church Street marks the spot where the great artist visited his sister, having walked all the way from London. Given that the Welwyn North station was built in 1850, you have to wonder why he didn't take the train, probably a much prettier journey. Serving the villages of both Welwyn and Digswell, north of Welwyn Garden City, the station receives trains from London Kings Cross that have crossed the impressive Welwyn Viaduct to the south and from Cambridge and Peterborough through two tunnels to the north. When Welwyn Garden City station arrived in 1926, Welwyn North's Grade II listed station and footbridge lost much of its traffic, and the once-important coach town became a village, but later in the century, houses started springing up around the tracks, making it now a popular commuter village.
