Synopsis

Rails to Chorleywood…and beyond by Hugh Howes and The Friends of Chorleywood Signal Box.

This book provides an interesting insight into the coming of the Metropolitan Railway and how the railway altered Chorleywood and the Chilterns. Since 1889, when the railway first arrived, there have been many changes to the traffic on the line as society and technology have evolved over the years.

The book provides a comprehensive account of the railway and its impact on the Chilterns, it covers the history of the two railway companies, provides details of the trains and how the railway enabled Chorleywood to grow in the form that we know today.

Rails to Chorleywood…and beyond is an ideal book for those interested in not only Chorleywood but also the railways in Hertfordshire.
