Railways and the Lake District

Here is a special collaboration by two veteran recorders of the railway scene in words and pictures. Since 1967, David Joy has written over 50 books on railways and numerous aspects of the Lake District. Gavin Morrison, one of Britain’s most experienced railway photographers, has compiled more than 60 books and has gained the highest reputation for the quality of his work.

As a sequel to their best-selling Railways and the Dales, they have again decided to celebrate four decades of working together in a book that is both informative and richly illustrated. Gavin first selected his favourite photographs depicting lines serving the Lake District. David then wrote an evocative text emphasising their origins and how they have changed through to the present day. The result is a nostalgic portrayal of railways in this mountainous and much-visited corner of England.

Coverage includes the main line over Shap and the acclaimed route round the Lake District coast as well as branches past and present to Windermere, Coniston and Keswick. There are sections on the preserved Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway, the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway and the recently established Threlkeld Quarry & Mining Museum.

Hardback with dust jacket, 128 pages, black & white and colour photographs
