From the cover: A journey back in time to the days when the Cotswolds were opened up to the outside world by railways and pioneer bus services. An age when life on the land was a hard and unrewarding process and the great estates and landowners dominated rural life. But Cotswold Memories looks at the lighter moments as well: fairs and festivals and the exciting days when new railways were brought to the old market towns and villages, enabling people to travel further than they had ever done before. The book traces the life of Cotswold people related to the railways and road services from the earliest days to the 1950s, when suddenly everyone seemed to have a car and many rural lines disappeared beneath the grass and scrub almost overnight.
