My pictures feature in Sir Simon Jenkins’ new book

A little while ago I was asked to take some photographs by Penguin Random House publishers for a new book about railway station architecture. The book is called ‘Britains’s 100 Best Railway Stations’ by Simon Jenkins.

The photographs I was asked to take are of Preston and Penrith stations and it was great to receive a copy of the book earlier this week. I’m not a railway buff but I have been dipping in and out of it over the last few days. It is really interesting and there are some great pics of course! I’ve learnt a bit about Preston station too. Apparently, during the boom years, Preston had no fewer than five separate railway companies and five stations, only merged into one in 1879.

For anyone interested in architecture or the railways, this is a fantastic Christmas present. Here are a few of the pics I took of Preston and Penrith Stations.
