Lincolnshire Loop Line (GNR) and the River Witham LP190

by A J Ludlam

This is one of the main reference works for anyone interested in the Loop Line – from Peterborough to Retford via Lincoln which originally was a nickname given in the days of the febrile atmosphere of 1844 – 46, it became the main route to the north until the main line was complete in 1852 and a name that stuck and was used in later legislation to name the line.

Ludlam has done a good job on providing a useful overview of the background to the line and one to have on your shelf. Out of print at present but regularly available on online sellers like Amazon and abebooks.co.uk or similar.
