The diversity of railway activity at the county town of Derby forms a fascinating start to a journey of variety ending in North Staffordshire.

The various industries, once rail served, ranged from brewing to coal mining and pottery production.



[on Derby to Stoke-on-Trent and Rugeley to Stoke-on-Trent]
'Here are two useful additions to the wide-ranging and ongoing series of Middleton Press railway titles covering the wide areas of the Trent Valley, Potteries and the associated rail networks.'
(The Railway Magazine, June 2017)

'It might be easy to take Middleton Press' ongoing series for granted, but this is another well researched  and illustrated volume covering parts of the country not often written about.'
(Steam World, Issue 354, December 2016)
