Nickey Line

The Nickey Line is a former railway line that linked Hemel Hempstead, Redbourn and Harpenden and was officially known as the Harpenden and Hemel Hempstead Railway.

The Nickey Line now forms a pleasant green corridor, a footpath and cycleway, forming part of the National Cycle Network, providing attractive countryside and woodland walks, as well as a traffic free route to school or work. The route is approximately seven miles long.
