Cutting Remarks

The Story of Roade’s Railways and Cutting through the Ages. Roade cutting was considered to be one of the great works in the construction of the original London and Birmingham Railway ( now known as the West Coast Line ) between 1833 and 1838, being about 1½ mile in length, of considerable average depth, a good part of which consisted of hard rock—the Great Oolite Limestone.

This book covers the history of the Cutting up to current times and is full of intriguing tales of equal interest to rail and social historians.
