Description

Set in rural North Devon, the Torrington & Marland Light Railway was developed to move products from the Marland Brick and Clay Company’s works at Peters Marland to the LSWR railhead at Torrington station for onward distribution to Barnstaple and beyond.Devon is a county rich in industrial history, and a full account of this, one of the best known of its narrow gauge clay lines, is long overdue. Author, Rod Garner has amassed a vast amount of material on the railway and on the clay works that were the reason for its existence, much of it seen here for the first time.Renowned for its wooden viaducts and trestles, in addition to its unusual motive-power, the Torrington and Marland Light Railway has now passed into history, but in this book it is resurrected for anyone who was not fortunate to see it in its heyday.
