St Margarets sign

St Margarets is a station in Hertfordshire on the branch to Hertford East. For me it was the end of a short walk along the river Lee from Rye House.

The front of the station building, seen from the car park:

A small plaque in the car park's wall marks the station's 1992 refurbishment:

The two sides of the station are connected at its southern end by the level crossing over the High Street, and also by a footbridge:
