My latest book is now out with Graffeg Books.

Lost Lines: Wye Valley – Chepstow to Monmouth.

Opened in 1876 and closed to passengers in 1959, the Wye Valley Railway ran from Tutshill Halt (just north of Chepstow) to Monmouth Troy. The scenic beauty of the lower Wye Valley, evident in many of the archive photographs collected for this volume, was well utilised by the Great Western Railway to promote tourism and many structures from its operation are still in existence. This includes Tintern station, now in use as a visitor centre in this very popular tourist area, which includes Tintern Abbey, Symonds Yat and the Forest of Dean.
