Rails in the Dales. By David Joy.
Covers railways in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, including Wharfedale, Ribblesdale, Swaledale and Wensleydale. The book shows how a diverse range of lines evolved and the affect they had on the communities they served. The Settle–Carlisle receives due attention but its cult status does not dominate these pages. The aim is an overall picture, ranging from such highlights as arguably Britain’s finest branch line terminus at Richmond through to the remarkable Nidd Valley Light Railway built to help solve a water crisis in distant Bradford.
Photographs capture the essence of rails in the dales and especially the lines that had gone long before the Beeching age.
