The signal box project is now in full swing with five meetings to date of the committee, from which a comprehensive administrative framework has been established. Read more on the news page of our brand new website https://www.chorleywoodsignalbox.co.uk/news
Next steps are to fund the refurbishment of inside the signal box and provide safe access from the station, bearing in mind it is situated on a working railway. It is estimated that these works would cost in the region of £15,000.

We need to preserve these important heritage sites as once they have gone they have gone for ever.
