Description - Along the Penistone Line by Peter Thomas

Why the nineteenth-century railway builders should even have thought of a line linking Huddersfield with Sheffield, now known as the Penistone Line, with the risk of all sorts of disasters-collisions, runaway trains, collapsed tunnels and viaducts: the Penistone Line had them all. Its operating costs made it a prime target for closure time and time again, yet against all the odds it survived and has become the heart of a community. The why and how are described in Peter Thomas' new book, "Along the Penistone Line". Not just a history of the line, this book is a guide to the area. Peter Thomas explores the towns and countryside, pubs and churches, museums and tourist attractions - looking at industrial heritage as well as country houses, and contrasting last of the Summer Wine country with Meadowhall. A wide selection of previously unpublished photographs, both old and new, illustrate the text.
