Branch Lines from Brookwood by Peter Harding. Brookwood in Surrey had two branch lines.  One visited the neighbouring communities of Bisley, Pirbright, Deepcut and Blackdown camps.

The second was to Brookwood Cemetery from London.  The cemetery had two stations, south for Anglicans and the other for non-conformists in the north of the cemetery.

Peter Harding examines the history of both lines.

Peter A. Harding has been writing and publishing his booklets since 1982 when the first edition of the Hawkhurst Branch Line was published. This title was meant to be a one off, but owing to demand he has now produced and published twenty five books in his series. The majority of the titles have since been updated and re-published as second editions, with the Hawkhurst Branch Line updated three times.

Enthusiasts of Southern branch lines and light railways have long been well served by Peter Harding’s excellent series of booklets. Each title is well researched by Peter and illustrated with images and personal drawings, making this series popular with rail enthusiasts and those interested in local history. Peter has previously mentioned that he has a tendency to focus on obscure lines which are often overlooked by other writers, such as the Hellingly Hospital Railway, making sure that such abandoned lines are not forgotten.
