Last train to Shippea Hill
Looking at migrant labour in the East Anglian Fens to Brexit & Beyond
Shippea Hill station in Cambridgeshire. The request-only stop was, until recently the least used station in Britain. In latter years it has become more popular as migrant workers commute from the villages surrounding the Ely rail terminus to the 07.17 train for the nine minute ride to the packhouses of the fens which surround the towns of Soham and Mildenhall.
