Northamptonshire is one of Britain's most inland counties and one of the most rural in southern England. Nevertheless, at the peak of the Railway Age in the latter part of the nineteenth century its railway system was one of most complex anywhere in the country.....
Lying across the axis of most of the major routes from London to the Midlands and the North, it encompassed many of the branch lines which struck off from these major routes, and this book is a fascinating collection of over fifty black and white photographs, dating from the late 1800s until the Beeching era of the 1960s. Locations included are: Blakesley, Wellingborough, Wappenham, Salcey Forest, Oundle, Brackley, Roade, Blisworth, Weedon, Braunston, Northampton, Irthlingborough, Ringstead and Addington, Thrapston, Orton Waterville, Peterborough, Banbury, Althorp Park, Lamport, Luffenham, Helpston, Uffington and Barnack, Cranford, Raunds, Gretton, Rushden, Desborough and Rothwell, Eye Green, Kings Sutton, Aynho, Cherwelton, Woodford and Hinton (later Woodford Halse), Chalcombe, Towcester, Byfield, and the tiny station of Long Buckby, final stopping place for the Royal Train on the occasion of Princess Diana's funeral
