The Mansfield & Pinxton Railway
Many years ago the Old Mansfield Society commenced a series of Occasional Papers on specialist topics connected with the history of the town. This series proved rather more occasional than had been intended, but now it has been revived, with the production of:
The Mansfield and Pinxton Railway
by John Vanags
The new book is 40 pages long, in A5 format, and costs £2.90. It tells the whole story of Mansfield's first (horse-drawn) railway line, from its conception to its death and rebirth in 1849 as part of the Midland line to Nottingham. You can read an extract on this website.
