Do you know that the Stamford Mercury is Britain’s oldest continuously published newspaper ? Since 1712 – and that’s not just a bit after 5 o’clock.
Thank you to the Mercury for the coverage, and also linking to Alicia Kearns MP survey about Luffenham station.
Stamford town councillor’s have made us aware that disabled access (or Persons of Reduced Mobility if we’re being more politically correct) is poor, with people having to cross the line via a ‘barrow crossing’, which is an additional bit of friction for travellers, especially when the station is unmanned.
Also consider being a parent with two children, the one in the pram is OK, but if you also have a slightly older child to keep a firm grip on, then picking up the phone to call the signaller before crossing the line is certainly not going to encourage anyone to get on the train, especially for a short local journey.
As of Fri 8th Oct 2020 the most read article on the Mercury’s website.
