The Coniston Railway


This is a new edition with minor revisions of this popular Cumbrian title which has been unavailable for some time. Lake Coniston might well have been the obvious destination for a railway, to provide access for visitors to enjoy this special area of the Lake District. Certainly Coniston did get a railway but providing a facility for visitors was not the primary reason for building it. Industrial commerce was the driving force, copper being the prime consideration. This book tells the history of the railway, which closed in 1962, and its other operations.
