West Country Railways

Sat 19 Mar 2016 @ 9:00 - 16:00

£50.00

This course explores the archaeology and heritage of railways from Wiltshire to Cornwall. Brunel’s work is seen in the Box Tunnel, Dawlish railway, Royal Albert Bridge and spectacular viaducts. Abandoned lines are worth investigating, especially branches serving mineral and other industries. Case studies include the contrasting Liskeard and Caradon Railway, and the Somerset and Dorset Railway. Alongside, the region’s heritage includes a number of important preserved steam-worked railways. All-comers welcome.
