Radley People and the Railway by Christine Wootton. This book tells the story of Radley and its railway from 1843 to 2013, including the much-loved but now defunct branch line to Abingdon affectionately known by locals as ‘The Bunk’. The coming of the railway had a great effect on rural communities, and this history recounts not only its origins, but also the lives of people impacted from the beginning until the present day.
The book not only contains a wealth of photographs, but there is also considerable human interest with stories and anecdotes of those who worked on the railway and those who used it.
This book will not only be of interest to those with an interest in the railways of Oxfordshire and Berkshire, but will particularly appeal to those who enjoy reading personal memories and anecdotes of a community and its railway.
