Caphouse to Calder Grove- Paperback

£3.00

The local mineral line ran from Caphouse to Calder Grove, not only did it help the mine owners reach new markets for the coal and avoid hefty tolls, it became a lifeline for the local communities creating a transport system for a variety of commodities. This book goes further than a story about a railway but also looks at the importance of people, who laboured in frequently dangerous conditions to make sure that the line kept working and wages kept coming.
