Chorleywood Station Signal Box

posted 21 Apr 2019, 01:50 by Chorleywood Residents' Association

Owen Edis, Martin Trevett and Yvonne Merritt have met with four members of Tfl to see inside the building and discuss possible uses for the interior. Initial thoughts are that it could be a picture gallery for railway enthusiasts as a kind of museum to complement the Lady Ela exhibition in the Summerhouse in Chorleywood House Estate. This could be open on bank holidays and Steam on the Met days.  Obviously it would need some volunteers to develop the idea and man it when operational. Anyone interested please contact Owen Edis or Yvonne Merritt. Clearly the inside would need sprucing up, display boards fitted and safer access provided from the ‘Down’ platform. Martin Trevett has mentioned that TRDC have a Heritage fund that might be able to help with initial costs.

If anyone knows of residents who may have worked in the signal box when it was operational we would be very pleased to meet them. Their story could be told in the Box. Please contact chair@chorleywoodresidents.co.uk
