Description

Nuneaton is the most central town in England. The exact point has been triangulated to a patch of undergrowth at the foot of a railway embankment. It is not surprising that the town became an important junction on the north south trunk line, the Premier line of the London & North Western Railway, the West Coast line, as it is known today. Bedworth was, in its day, a very important coal-mining town. Its collieries fed vast quantities of coal to the railway system for onward transmission. Today Nuneaton and Bedworth are joined as a single metropolis. Both share in the value of their central location with passenger station and distribution depots. A pictorial review of the railway lines and features in the Nuneaton and Bedworth area. Over 200 images illustrate the development of the engines and railways, from the LNWR period, to more recent years. Peter Lee is an established author who has written two well-received books about Nuneatonshow more
