The Railway Navvies : A History of the Men Who Made the Railways, Hardback Book

The Railway Navvies : A History of the Men Who Made the Railways Hardback

Description

This is the definitive story of the men who built the railways - the unknown Victorian labourers who blasted, tunnelled, drank and brawled their way across nineteenth-century England.

Preached at and plundered, sworn at and swindled, this anarchic elite endured perils and disasters, and carved out of the English countryside an industrial-age architecture unparalleled in grandeur and audacity since the building of the cathedrals.
