It is the scene for our hopeful beginnings and our intended ends, and the timeless experiences of coming and going, meeting, greeting and parting. It is an institution with its own rituals and priests, and a long-neglected aspect of Britain’s architecture. And yet so little do we look at the railway station.
Simon Jenkins has travelled the length and breadth of Great Britain, from Waterloo to Wemyss Bay, Betws-y-Coed to Beverley, to select his hundred best. Blending his usual insight and authority with his personal reflections and experiences – including his founding the Railway Heritage Trust – the foremost expert on our national heritage deftly reveals the history, geography, design and significance of each of these glories.
Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs throughout, this joyous exploration of our social history shows the station’s role in the national imagination; champions the engineers, architects and rival companies that made them possible; and tells the story behind the triumphs and follies of these very British creations.
These are the marvellous, often undersung places that link our nation, celebrated like never before.
