The Road to Ribblehead by John R. Burns
A dramatic tragic and sometimes violent story of those men and their families who struggled to build the Ribblehead viaduct and Blea Moor tunnel as part of the last great railway built in Britain. Road to Ribblehead shows the courage and determination of the men who had to work in the most difficult conditions and the women and children who shared their lives. Except for the viaduct and tunnel nothing remains to show they ever existed. This book seeks to resurrect their memory and the difficult circumstances in which they struggled to survive.
