About the Book
This is the 8th in my "Round Britain" series following on from the Manchester area. This contains cities such as Bradford and Leeds, and nearby towns - before going East to Hull and North up to Newcastle. The next book will be the last of mainland England - the Blackpool area. The series will finish with the IOM and Scotland, making eleven books in all.
Originally from Romford, Essex where I travelled all over GB photographing railways (from 1962) and buses(from 1967). I moved up to Scotland in 1973 where I continued to record but now mainly preserved transport. The occasional trip south to see my favourite Bluebell railway and others was enjoyed. My main occupation upon moving north was for some time chasing A4 No.60009 'Union of South Africa' on its many railtours. Visits were also made to the Settle & Carlisle and on many occasions to the West Highland line. Most books produced from Alloa but from Jul'13 moved to near Berwick-upon-Tweed only 1/2 mile into Scotland.
