Cumbrian railways

£10.99

Product description

The introduction of railways during the early nineteenth century into the remote counties of Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire north of the sands transformed the mainly rural communities. Such industries as already existed were able to expand and new ones could exploit the new transport system, gaining access to the physical resources of the area and a new supply of labour. Most importantly, tourism grew rapidly in the Lake District as the new north-south rail links transported thousands of holiday-makers into the area.

Through a series of evocative pictures, illustrations and unique archival documents, the reader is taken on a journey tracing the rise and slow decline of Cambrian railways. Authors and regional historians John Marsh and John Garbutt have produced a guide that will prove invaluable and pleasurable for all those interested in this important part of Britain's railway heritage.  

Personal dedication to previous owner.
