The Railway of Birmingham Corporation Waterworks. The first of a new series of revived classics from our extensive backlist, using the existing artwork but with new printing plates, we offer the chance once again to obtain this much sought after title. When the famous Elan Valley reservoirs were built the railway helped to transform this beautiful part of Wales to the sight known and loved by so many holiday- makers and daytrippers today. The story of how the dams were built and why, is beautifully told here. There is a fascinating insight into the men who built the dams and the village that was constructed for the navvy community. For all those interested in this part of Mid- Wales, railways and Victorian social history, this book makes compelling reading. A5 format, 240 pages, 170 photos/plans/documents etc. and a large fold-out map with a glossy laminated square-backed card cover.
