If your not living in the area feel free to pitch in with random favourite villages or 3 bed semi info

  • Live in Harpenden, there is going to be a direct train to Charlton on week nights, huge result.
  • Lutton is a nice village
    Or was when i lived there.

    Long Sutton bit of a Shithole

    Fleet Hargate also a nice area.

    Lots of Charlton fans in Harpenden. When I say lots I mean about a dozen.

    I don't live there now but grew up there. I got to know all the Harpenden Addicks eventually. Not so many left now but there was always enough to have an annual gathering each summer. Nice to hear we're still represented. If we don't go up at least Luton away is nice and handy!

    Good to hear. I am from Dartford and lived in Greenwich for 10 years until I met my wife and moved to Harpo. Been here for almost 10 years now. Good to hear there are more.
    Yep, Luton away, very very easy.

  • Tried to find info on Cambridge to charlton direct... couldn’t

    Closest was this: https://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/cambridge-news/new-cambridge-trains-take-you-13770340.amp

    Got a link?
  • No offence, but who wants to go Harpenden to Charlton, or vice versa? Unless you're a Harpendon supporter living in Charlton
  • Cambridge/Peterboro lines will go through to Brighton @Siv_in_Norfolk so it means direct to LB as opposed to Northern Line from Kings Cross.

    For us in Hertfordshire living a whole 20 miles from the centre of London it will be quite useful, of course for those Kentish 'locals' who are lucky to live only 80 miles away the post will be of no interest ;-)
  • Pretty handy for me now im based in Arlesey. Even better would be making the 2 hour + train trip to Luton slightly shorter like the 25 min drive !
  • I used to live in Potton.

    Do they have a train station now or is it a bus every three hours to Sandy or Biggleswade then a train from there?

    I would have thought you would want to take as long as possible to get to Luton. Not many people are in a rush to get there.
