The New Radnor Branch

Regular price £20.00

This 60 page book deals with the history of the Kington to New Radnor section of the line. There are no details about the Presteigne or Eardisley Branch Lines, or the section from Leominster to Kington. It deals purely from Kington to New Radnor.

Plenty of photographs (all black & white), track plans and timetables. The station layout drawings and track plans for Kington and Dolyhir are very impressive, including topographic features (hills, ditches, marshes and streams). Basic track plans are given for Stanner (1896 and 1928). Three basic track plans for New Radnor are given (1896, 1903 and then circa 1950). Signalling information is also included as is a basic drawing for a wagon of the Old Radnor Trading Co.

Chapters include - 
Forward and Introduction.
Chapter 1 = Building The Line.
Chapter 2 = A Great Western Branch Line.
Chapter 3 = Along the Line.
Appendix = Old Radnor Trading Company - A light history is given about this company. A nice touch!

Softback, 64 pages, black & white photos, drawings

Please be aware that advance orders will be sent as soon as the relevant book has been published. 

When placing your order, please ensure that you add the correct full shipping address to your order. This includes house number, street name, zip code/post code. If parcels are returned on account of an incorrect shipping address we will contact you to seek the correct address and also ask that you pay a contribution towards posting the parcel to you a second time. 


All orders over £20.00 are post free to all UK addresses. For orders of £20 or less, a £1.50 postage fee will be added. These are normally sent via Royal Mail 48 Hour (the business equivalent of 2nd class mail) which is not tracked. If you require tracking for your, tracking options are available for a small fee. If the service that you require is not shown, please get in touch with us and we can quote for your desired service.

Large, bulky or high value orders may be split in to multiple consignments or sent via courier. There is no additional charge for this and you will be advised at the order fulfillment stage if this happens.


Overseas orders are charged based on weight, and postage will be automatically calculated at checkout. For a postage quotation, please add the items you want to your cart and proceed to the checkout. All orders are usually sent via Air Mail - this is not tracked. If you required your order to be tracked or sent by a different service, please contact us, preferably before checkout.

Royal Mail will only accept parcels up to 5kg in weight (2kg for Canada). If you are ordering multiple items that exceed these limits, please contact us first so that we can advise you of the appropriate shipping rate.

Due to the high volume of parcels going missing, we are no longer able to send untracked orders via third party mail handling services such as Parcel Motel. We are able to send untracked parcels to bona fide PO Box addresses, friends and family members and to work addresses.

Some countries charge import taxes and we suggest that in these cases, you asked for your order to be tracked so the local taxation authorities can trace your parcel.

Please note that courier services are unable to deliver to PO Box addresses. If you usually use a PO Box address, you will need to supply an alternative address if you require shipping by courier.
