Britain's 100 Best Railway Stations

Description
Simon Jenkins has travelled the length and breadth of Great Britain, from Waterloo to Wemyss Bay, Betws-y-Coed to Beverley, to select his hundred best railway stations.
Blending his usual insight and authority with his personal reflections and experiences he deftly reveals the history, geography, design and significance of each of these glories. Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs throughout, this joyous exploration of our social history shows the station's role in the national imagination; champions the engineers, architects and rival companies that made them possible; and tells the story behind the triumphs and follies of these very British creations.

These are the marvellous, often under sung places that link our nation, celebrated like never before.
'However spectacular the book's photographs, it's the author's prowess as a phrase-maker that keeps you turning the pages' The Times
'An uplifting exploration of our social history' Guardian
