Stone Railway Station Access

April 2022

We want to know if step-free access at Stone Rail station would help you.

In April 2022 All the Small Things are asking people for their views on access to Stone Railway Station.

The information we get from the research may give us evidence of the need for better access, including the possible installation of lifts. It will inform potential future bids for funding to carry out this work.
