From Lostwithiel to the China Clay Rails takes the reader on a train journey from the estuary of the River Fowey to the port of Par, thence on a circular tour across the spine of Cornwall to the Atlantic Coast at Newquay and back, traveling through the heart of china clay country. Over a period of fifty years from the 1960’s, we visit many of the china clay lines now long gone with many jaw dropping images taken “Then and Now” showing the great changes both on and off the rails. A host of memories are recalled and updated in this treasure chest of very rare color material, mostly previously unpublished and almost all taken by the author.
