Product Description

About the Author

Peter Guise was born in 1955 in Canterbury, Kent. Married with a now adult daughter, Peter spent 33 years in public service before turning a hobby into a freelance career in radio sports broadcasting, mostly (but not exclusively) for the BBC. Cricket commentary is his major broadcasting passion although he has been privileged to commentate at both the old and new Wembley for two FA Vase Finals. Often accused of being a dinosaur, Peter has a lifelong interest in railway heritage and closed lines in particular that might have provided a useful (and viable) addition to today’s transport infrastructure had they either remained open or been built in the modern era.

Whilst there are many books on the "Crab & Winkle", this book gives an "up-to-date" review of what there is left to see of the railway, now that 60+ years have passed since it's closure.

The other book, so far, in the series "Elham Valley Railway" is also excellent and an ideal companion to this book.

They are both compact, written with clarity (without "jargon" and are easilt slipped into the pocket for exploration of the lines concerned.
