Peter Tarplee - Railways Around Leatherhead & Dorking


This is not a study for die hard railway enthusiasts, but a book to help people understand how the network grew and developed over the years in the Dorking and Leatherhead area and perhaps explain why parts of it are as they are today. It is intended to be more a study in social history than a detailed account of the railway technology. The author has tried to avoid too much detail, both of railway procedure and technology and of the history, he has tried to produce a book for the general reader giving some historical information about railways around this part of the Home Counties from the first public railway in 1803 to the network which we know today.

 This book has 158 pages with black and white photographs. Published in 2011.
