Northern Northumberland's Minor Railways

Volume Four : Limestone Industry Lines

This book attempts to be comprehensive, but written records of some railways are
sparse or incomplete, and, in the case of many of the lines, there is no one still alive with personal memories to impart. Photographs can provide valuable insight into the working of a line. However, in researching this final book in the series the author has been handicapped by the early demise of some of the limeworks railways. Those at Beadnell,Seahouses and Ancroft, for example, had closed before the mid-point of the 19th century.Just two limeworks survived in the area until after the end ofWorldWar II.

Photo Gallery Various new photographs have become available since the
publication of the first three books in this series. They illustrate lines already described in earlier volumes and the opportunity has been taken to reproduce them here as a short Gallery. Notable amongst these are several photographs, taken in the early years of the 20th century, of Long Dyke colliery at Shilbottle. In addition there is a collection of photographs taken soon after W.T. Bathgate showing the plant and remains of the rails and a locomotive. Other images provide additional views of steam in action at Amble, whilst others add to the social history, associated with the lines
Softcover, 136 pages.
