Kempston Hardwick


Kempston Hardwick

Kempston Hardwick is a small village near the town of Kempston in Bedfordshire. Historically it was one of the hamlets or "ends" scattered across the parish of Kempston. It has a station on the Marston Vale Line which hit the headlines when it was revealed it only has one passenger a day. Ironically, the town of Kempston itself has no railway station, despite the fact that it has a population of about 20,000 and some have suggested the station should be relocated in Kempston.
