Product Information

ISBN:978183536923, SOFTBACK

Victorian Innovations & construction methods for the Great Central Railway.

This new publication results from nearly four years of research and writing the majority of
the latest information about the construction of the Great Central Railway through
Nottingham (Annesley to East Leake Contract No1) has been downloaded from newspaper
articles of the period using the British Newspaper Archive. At the time of the new
M.S.&L.R. London Extension (G.C.R), every week updates were printed in the press both
locally and nationally.
The core of the research accumulated over 250 articles; this database was then scrutinised and
reduced to acquire news articles with the most informative information. The news articles
were then assembled into a timeline that followed the new lines construction from inception
to completion, 1890 to 1900.
The work is further enhanced with information from the Institute of Civil Engineers and over
90 images of the lines construction from the Newton Collection and Nottingham Local
Studies Library. Plus, maps and diagrams.
