Belgrave and Birstall Remembered by John Powdrill. How a local railway station was gained, lost and regained by those who knew, used and tried to preseve the station.
What happened to Belgrave and Birstall Station? Using 150 photos and stories about the railway between Greengate Lane in Birstall and the site of Thurcaston Road bridge in Belgrave, north of Leicester, this 64 page book describes how and why the station was built; who worked there; who played there; how it operated; who its neighbours were; what happened and why we could not save it in 1969.
