LOST RAILWAYS OF HEREFORDSHIRE & WORCESTERSHIRE

Lost Railways of Herefordshire & Worcestershire

by Leslie Oppitz

Countryside Books, 2002 and reprints, ISBN 1 85306 754 7

This 160 page A5 size book with Black and White photographs is a very interesting read. As far as your reviewer can tell it is surprisingly free of factual errors and as such has much to commend it.

The writer devotes a chapter to each of the main lost railway lines in the two counties carefully showing some of what remains to be seen of the railways. The writing style is relaxed and thoroughly interesting. Hardly suprising then that the book has already be reprinted to meet the demand for copies of the book.

Recommended.
