Although the River Lea seems a miserable stream now, Mill Street gets its name from one of Luton's three water mills. No trace is now visible, nor is it shown on the large scale OS maps: both the mill and mill pond were destroyed when the Midland Railway was built. The Mill was situated under the tracks behind the Palace Theatre. Oddly, the outline of the mill pond is shown on the 1880 1:2500 map as land lot number 1437.

As pupils of Luton Grammar School we were given a graphic account of the riots and the burning of the Town Hall by our History Teacher Dr Dony, who was present at the riots in 1919.

Luton Bute Street Station was on the old LNER line, later BR Eastern Region. Trains ran to Dunstable Town and also to Newmill End, Harpenden East, Wheathampstead, Ayot (until the station was destroyed by fire in 1948), Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield. The line closed(Dr Beeching's axe)in 1965. In the last years it was served by diesel multiple units. I remember walking in woods near Ayot St Peter in the early 60s and hearing a steam train whistle on the line.

The Bute Street warehouses are shown here. Although a much smaller line than the LMS, the LNER line always handled the bulk of Luton's freight - initially hats crated up for delivery to London and the north, and later engineering and motor industry products. The part of the line between Luton and Dunstable remained open until 1990, eventually moving only cement.

When I was a child we often used the line to Hatfield to get to London. It was a lot cheaper than going direct to St Pancras. We usually changed trains at Hatfield, but there were a few that went through to Kings Cross. We usually returned from Kings Cross on the Cambridge Buffet Express. There was just about time to have tea before we reached Hatfield.
