We wish to thank Ray Wardleworth and Roger Gurney, originally from Lidlington, who have very kindly loaned Lidlington Online original photographs from 1955. Reproduction is not permitted without prior written consent from the stated copyright holder.

Just a short walk from Lidlington the Midland main line from Bedford to London St. Pancras passes by Millbrook village and enters the north portals of Ampthill tunnel. This was a good spot for photography with tunnels, bridges and embankments...
