The railway station is one of England's most distinctive and best-loved building types. Yet over the past century the nation's stations have often been overlooked or dismissed, and have suffered accordingly. Today a new interest in railways - fuelled by the need for sustainability, by a growing awareness ofthe realities oftransport economics and by the dedication of enthusiastic volunteers at heritage railways across the country - has sparked a renaissance for the historic railway station and a new appreciation of the aesthetic virtues and regeneration potential of imaginative station architecture.

The English Railway Station is an accessible, engaging and comprehensively illustrated general history ofthe architectural development and social history of the British railway station, from the dawn of the Railway Age to the ravages of the 1960s and the station's rebirth at the end of the 20th century. It traces how the station evolved into a recognisable building type, examines the 'great cathedrals' and the evocative country stations of the Victorian era, and looks at how the railway station has, over the last fifty years, regained its place at the heart of our communities.
