Description

A superb and wonderfully illustrated guide to Britain's villages, towns and connecting railways, dating from 1866. Unavailable for many years and much sought after, this classic guide book is now faithfully reissued for a new generation

Bradshaw's Railway Handbook was originally published in 1866 under the title Bradshaw's Handbook for Tourists in Great Britain and Ireland. It appeared in four volumes as a comprehensive handbook for domestic tourists, and includes beautiful engravings of English cathedrals, castles and other views along with maps, period advertisements and nostalgic descriptions of English life, all set in charming Victorian typefaces. As a companion to the first two volumes (London ands its environs and Tours in North and South Wales), Conway is proud to announce the reissue of the third volume of this series, which focuses on 'Tours in Hertford, Buckingham, Northampton, Warwick, Stafford, Chester and the Northern Counties of Scotland' – but actually deals with a broad swathe of English and Scottish metropolitan, suburban and rural landscape full of fascinating period detail.

This rare and much- sought-after tome is the very same book that Michael Portillo carried and referred to throughout his 'Great British Railway Journeys' series. Now available to a new generation of readers, it will appeal to railway, steam and transport enthusiasts, local historians, and anyone with an interest in British heritage, the Victorian period, or the nation's industrial past.
