ENGLAND’S
CATHEDRALS BY TRAIN

DISCOVER HOW THE NORMANS AND VICTORIANS

HELPED TO SHAPE OUR LIVES

MURRAY NAYLOR

FOREWORD BY LORD HOPE

One of the jewels in the nation’s crown is its Anglican cathedrals. Many, constructed
after the invasion of 1066, stand as monuments to the determination and
commitment of their Norman builders. Others have been built in later centuries while
some started life as parish churches and were subsequently raised to cathedral
status. Places of wonder and beauty, they symbolize the Christian life of the nation
and are more visited today than ever as places which represent England’s religious
creed, heritage and the skills of their builders.
Eight hundred years later came the Victorians who pioneered the Industrial Revolution
and created railways. Like their Norman predecessors they built to last and the railway
system bequeathed to later generations, has endured in much the same form as when
originally constructed. There is little sign that railways will be displaced by other
modes of transport, at least in the foreseeable future.
Combining a study of thirty-three English cathedrals and the railway systems which
allow them to be reached, the author seeks to celebrate these two magnificent
institutions. In the process he hopes to encourage others to travel the same journeys he himself has undertaken
