The Branch Lines of East Anglia: Bury, Colne Valley, Saffron Walden and Stour Valley Branches Paperback
Part of the The Branch Lines of ... series
By the end of the nineteenth century the railway had reached most parts of East Anglia, with two main lines reaching out from London to Norwich, Cambridge and Kings Lynn and with plenty of small secondary and branch lines filling in the gaps between.
In this informative volume, Andy T. Wallis uses over 200 fascinating photographs and maps to explore the history of the four lines in north Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, which have all now closed save for one section of the Stour Valley line.
Also included are the branches from Long Melford to Bury St Edmunds, the Saffron Walden branch and the former Colne Valley & Halstead Railway from Chappel & Wakes Colne to Haverhill branch. Well-researched and in depth, this volume will appeal not only to steam railway enthusiasts, but also to local historians.
