All Change for the Colne Valley Line

For some time I have been collecting information about the railway line between Cambridge and Colchester (Shelford – Marks Tey). The main focus will Haverhill, the town where I spent most of my childhood; especially the station, Haverhill Junction. This will not be a “railway freaks” book but more of a social history along the line. This is a slightly longer term project. I have been inspired by  the recent launch of a book with a similar theme based on an Italian railway line.

In due course I will be launching the idea through social media and inviting people to provide their own stories of life along the towns/villages of the line and their memories of using the railway, such as:

  • Sunday trips to the sea
  • School outings
  • Visiting relatives
  • Special shopping visits
  • Going on holiday
