The railways : nation, network and people by Simon Bradley( )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The railways. Thousands of route-miles fenced off from the rest of the country, carved into landscapes barely changed since Shakespeare's time and ruled by their own mysterious rhythms and laws. From the classical architecture of Newcastle Station to the unrelenting traffic and expanse of Clapham Junction and the lost stations of Oban and Challow, Simon Bradley explores the landscape of the railways, the trains and the passengers who pass through it. Private compartments and railway rugs have given way to 'standard' carriages with lavatories and luggage racks, but other parts of the system are old -- some the oldest in the world. Bradley weaves from these networks a remarkable story of technological change, of architecture and engineering, of shifting social classes, gender relations and public health, of tourism and the changing world of work, showing us that to travel through Britain by train is to travel through time as well as space."--Publisher description

Cambridgeshire by Simon Bradley( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the essential companion to the architecture of Cambridgeshire, fully revised for the first time in sixty years. Half of the book is devoted to the famous University city, with its astonishingly rich and varied inheritance of college buildings. Cambridge is also the place to see post-war architecture at its most bold and inventive, both for the colleges and for the expanding University. A matching combination of boldness and innovation may be found at Ely Cathedral, one of the greatest achievements of English medieval architecture. By comparison, the rest of the county remains surprisingly little known. Its largely unspoiled landscapes vary from the flat fen country of the north to the rolling chalk uplands of the south and east; its architecture encompasses rewarding village churches, distinctive vernacular building in timber, stone and brick, the former monastic sites at Denny and Anglesey, and the magnificent aristocratic seat of Wimpole Hall
