Victorian railway stations reflected the importance of that revolutionary mode of transport for Britain. The great iron roads transformed both rural and urban landscapes, as well as fundamentally changing the pattern of social and commercial life for all sections of the population.The stations along the different lines were statements of the pride in them felt by their railway company owners. Each station built carried their individual mark of quality, and in key cities many had money lavished upon them of a celebrity-status magnitude.Trevor Yorke s book describes the development of the Victorian stations, with their wide range of architectural influences and styles, and discusses the notable architects employed to create them. His richly illustrated book, filled with his own photographs and detailed drawings, pays tribute to the architectural heritage that has been left to us by the Victorians in their railway stations of all sizes, from the palatial terminus to the humble halt."

In the half century after the building of the Crystal Palace (1851), some architects, engineers, manufacturers and theorists believed that the fusion of iron and ornament would reconcile art and technology and create a new, modern architectural language. This book studies the development of mechanised architectural ornament in iron in nineteenth-century architecture, its reception and theorisation, and the contexts in which it flourished. As such, it offers new ways of understanding the notion of modernity in Victorian architecture.

The perfect new gift from the bestselling author of Britain's 1000 Best Churches It is the scene for our hopeful beginnings and our intended ends, and the timeless experiences of coming and going, meeting, greeting and parting. It is an institution with its own rituals and priests, and a long-neglected aspect of Britain's architecture. And yet so little do we look at the railway station. Simon Jenkins has travelled the length and breadth of Great Britain, from Waterloo to Wemyss Bay, Betws-y-Coed to Beverley, to select his hundred best. Blending his usual insight and authority with his personal reflections and experiences - including his founding the Railway Heritage Trust - the foremost expert on our national heritage deftly reveals the history, geography, design and significance of each of these glories. Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs throughout, this joyous exploration of our social history shows the station's role in the national imagination; champions the engineers, architects and rival companies that made them possible; and tells the story behind the triumphs and follies of these very British creations. These are the marvellous, often undersung places that link our nation, celebrated like never before.
