From the rear side cover: Davyhulme Sewage Works, located on the western outskirts of Manchester close to the Ship Canal was a local authority development dating from the 1890s to cope with waste from the expanding city. It is still in use today as one of the largest waste water treatment plants in Europe.
This book traces the story of the development of the works to meet the needs of a growing city, and the important part the site's 3-ft gauge railway played in its story. There are full details of the locomotives that operated there from the 1890s until use of the railway ceased at the end of the 1950s...
