Tales of Somerset Steam

Product Description

The age of steam not only conjures up the image of smoke-billowing trains powering across open countryside, but also steam-driven mills and mines.  

Using some first-hand accounts, the book describes the impact steam had on Somerset and the way it changed people's lives for ever.

The discovery of steam-power changed people's lives for ever in Somerset. It fuelled the industrial revolution and was used to drive local mills, mines and trains. Later it brought great changes to the farming and craft industries.

Bridgwater author Roger Evans begins with his own local childhood memories of seaside excursions taken and then takes the reader through the era that saw steam as the key to all progress especially to the development of the local railway network.
