Fairfield Parish Council

Local Travel

By train

Fairfield Park is equidistant between Arlesey and Letchworth Stations. Arlesey is on the main London Kings X and St Pancras International lines to the North line and the local service is drawn from the Peterborough to London route. Letchworth is on the London to Cambridge and Kings Lynn line.

People wanting the best of both worlds should use Hitchin Station which is at the junction of both the Peterborough and Cambridge lines.

For train times, on-line booking and all train information click here.

There is a very large car park at Arlesey Station that is privately run and has lower charges than Network Rail car parks.

By bus

The 97 bus route from Hitchin via Letchworth to Stotfold Green and return  turns into Dickens Boulevard and use the bus stop on the right hand side. This has recently been updated and now offers a half-hourly service during weekdays.

A weekday daily shoppers bus runs from Monday to Fridays and goes to Letchworth Sainsbury’s via the Town Centre. This is privately run.

Hospital Transport

Fairfield Park is served by two hospitals, Bedford General and Lister Hospital at Stevenage. Making your own way to either is a test of endurance by public transport. This link will help you plan your journey.

However, Lister Hospital operates a Health Shuttle from Monday to Friday. This is a subsidised door-to-door service for staff, patients and visitors from Arlesey, Clifton, Henlow, Shillington, and Stotfold to the Lister. Booking line available: Monday – Friday 8.15am – 5.15pm Tel: 01438 726219

There is also the Trust-run voluntary car service. (For this service you need to check eligibility at the Hospital or at your GP surgery.) This is a transport service co-ordinated by the Trust using volunteer drivers to transport eligible patients to and from health appointments. Customers are charged a rate per mile from the driver’s home to the appointment and back again. Customers in receipt of certain benefits do not pay.

For the Lister hospital car service ring Tel: 01438 286586. Booking line available: Monday to Friday 10:00am – 12 midday. Closed on public holidays
