Book reviews — April 1986
RAILWAY RIGHTS OF WAY. Rhys ab Ellis
An incredibly detailed and low-priced book gives a list of sections of former railway line, however short, which have been converted into footpath, cycle path or road, locations, length, O.S. reference points and the original railway company; included are any bestowed names (eg. Colne Greenway) and even proposed schemes and a dozen photographs. At £2 post-paid, a bargain, from R. B. Turner, Branch Line Society, 18 Stanley Place, Walsall, West Mids. WS4 1EL. DAVID THOMAS
OLD ORDNANCE SURVEY MAPS
Most members will by now be familiar with the very successful range of maps published by Alan Godfrey from Newcastle. We published a comprehensive list on the back of the GLIAS Book Order form last autumn. But Mr. Godfrey has been very busy since and the following additional new maps are available: New Barnet 1894, North Finchley 1894, Walthamstow Marshes 1894, Leyton 1894, Wanstead Flats 1893, Highbury and Islington 1914, Hackney 1913, Rotherhithe 1894, North Woolwich including Woolwich High St. 1869 and Old Kent Road 1894.
Now for the bad news — the price is going up to £1 per map. GLIAS will hold the old price of 90p. for these new maps plus all the old ones until our AGM, so order now. Remember to include 20p postage. Order from: Tom Smith, 74 Lord Warwick St, Woolwich, SEI8 5QD.
