New Website

As you may have noticed, we have launched our new website.

It was developed for us at a concessionary rate by local Dunstable based web company Fortem Digital, supported by a generous £500 grant from the Railway Ramblers. We want to publically thank both organisations for their contributions.

Do check out our new site. It is mobile friendly with much new or revised content including:

Month by month nature notes of things to look out for, with stunning new photographs

What to see on the Nickey Line – interesting features on the different sections of the Line with historic and other relevant notes – worth checking out before you walk or cycle a new section of the Line

– Improved walks and cycle routes with easily downloaded maps and guidance notes

– New Galleries featuring Historic, Wildlife, Nickey Line and Friends photographs. If you have a great photograph you think would add to our Galleries, do email us with it!

Obviously, as with any new site, there may be the odd typo or other issue that has escaped our ‘eagle eyes’ – if you spot anything or want to make any comment on the site, do email us at
