The Banbury & Cheltenham Railway, volume 1

Regular price £22.00

Fully up to the high standards of its publisher, this book covers the line's history up until 1939 and the outbreak of war. The depth of research and the quality of the results and illustrations uncovered are astounding, chronologically culminating in an amazingly clear series of photographs of evacueees arriving at Chippng Norton. The same book is also available in a softbound format at £23.95 and in either format this is a beautiful book. Volume 2 (see separate description) is a detailed examination of the route and its stations from Banbury to Kingham, whilst volume 3 (not yet published) will complete the history after 1939 and cover associated ironstone workings and the remainder of the route from Kingham to Cheltenham.
