Lost Stations of Yorkshire Part 1 The West Riding

ISBN: 9781857944389
Published: 24-06-2015
Format: Softcover
Availability: Available
Author: Alan Young
Number of pages: 128

Price: £20.00

This book, the fourth in the series and the first of two set to cover Yorkshire, has once again been compiled by Alan Young, a major contributor to the website, and is intended to serve as a stand-alone record while also acting as a companion to the Disused Stations website. It follows roughly the same format but, as a book, will appeal to those who want to have something tangible to read and have available on their bookshelf.

Details:

In 2005 Nick Catford, a member of Subterranea Britannica, started the Disused Stations website with the aim of creating a definitive database of the UKs closed stations. The work to complete the database is ongoing and will take many years. To date there are 1,550 stations on the site and it is visited by thousands of people every week.

This book, the fourth in the series and the first of two set to cover Yorkshire, has once again been compiled by Alan Young, a major contributor to the website, and is intended to serve as a stand-alone record while also acting as a companion to the Disused Stations website. It follows roughly the same format but, as a book, will appeal to those who want to have something tangible to read and have available on their bookshelf. With so many stations now on the website it was difficult to decide which stations should be included here. Having started in Volume 1 with lost terminus stations in the North West, in this book we once again visit an area steeped in railway history - the North East - and visit a varied selection of lost stations. Once again they are featured in chronological order of opening date, this being an effective way of showing how the network developed, expanded and eventually contracted.

Addingham
Apperley Bridge & Rawdon
Arksey
Arthington
Aysgarth
Barnsley (Court House)
Bowes
Cargo Fleet
Castle Howard
Clayton West
