Full Steam ahead for new Longridge Book!

A fascinating new book records the story of the Preston to Longridge branch line from its opening in 1840 through to the last remaining segment of the branch in 1994. David Hindle's latest book details the fascinating and complex history of the combined mineral and passenger line which was only the second railway to open around Preston. One of the most striking chapters evokes nostalgic memories of the integrated and unique Whittingham Hospital Railway.
