Branch Lines of Oxfordshire

Branch Lines of Oxfordshire


Ref: FT149D


Price:16.95

Quantity:














Although Oxfordshire’s branch lines were not as numerous as those of many other counties, they were extremely diverse in terms of locomotives and rolling stock and they included specialist lines such as those for Morris Cowley.


Many of the lines had their hub in Oxford itself, and most were rural – although some did form part of a through route.


In this volume we revisit all of Oxfordshire’s branch lines, from Henley and Shiplake in the south, to Banbury and the Wroxton Quarry Railway in the north. Along the way we uncover hidden station sites and sample some delightful Cotswold villages and towns.


We also celebrate the county’s heritage railway activity, and there is a special treat for GWR enthusiasts with a visit to Didcot Railway Centre.


The story is enhanced by Colin Maggs’ superb photographic collection and his unrivalled insight, as well as excerpts of archive film.

Discovering Norfolk Vol.1: West Norfolk

Discovering Norfolk Vol.1: West Norfolk


Ref: FT150D


Price:14.95

Quantity:












Having explored the spectacular majesty of the south-west in thirteen films on Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire, we now venture across the country to commence a two part series on the glorious county of Norfolk.


Join Henry Buckton and the 1st Take team as we reveal the heritage and culture of beautiful West Norfolk, which is famous for its landscape of fens, forests and a hugely attractive coastline. In terms of history it boasts castles, abbeys and other important structures, and its towns and villages have been home to some remarkable industries and individuals.


Our tour starts at Downham Market, and highlights along the way include visits to King’s Lynn – the area’s biggest town, which is rich in maritime heritage – the elegant Victorian seaside resort of Hunstanton, Lord Nelson’s birthplace at Burnham Thorpe, charming Wells Next The Sea and Walsingham Abbey, a major medieval pilgrimage site.


Thetford is packed with places of interest, including the quirky Dad’s Army Museum, and you will also enjoy visits to Fakenham, with its unusual Museum of Gas and Local History, Swaffham’s links to Howard Carter and the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, Dereham, Attleborough and much more. Enjoy the journey!
