Summary

Llangwm, in Pembrokeshire, west Wales, huddles around an inlet of the Cleddau Estuary. Sitting at the end of a minor road with nowhere else to go, it is isolated. This isolation has over many generations engendered a strong sense of communal self-sufficiency. With its church, two chapels, post office, pub, rugby and cricket clubs, school, an annual literary festival, choir, and a host of other societies, it is a very busy village.

David Wilson lives and works in Llangwm and since 2019 has been photographing people at home, at work, and at play as well as the landscape and river in the immediate area. This book will offer a snapshot not just of a west Wales village but of a community whose feel is familiar to many.
Available since: 10/05/2021.

    The Race to the North - Rivalry...

    In the late nineteenth century, some of Britains leading main-line railway companies threw caution to the winds in an attempt to provide the fastest passenger express services between London and Scotland. These became known as the races to the north. There were two phases, in 1888 and 1895, and they spurred the building of new bridges across the Firth of Forth and Firth of Tay.David Wraggs gripping, detailed narrative tells the story of this epic engineering and commercial competition. He concentrates on the determination of the railway companies to see who could provide the fastest schedule between London and the main Scottish cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Dundee and Aberdeen.Casting aside their early policy of co-existence on these prestigious and lucrative routes, the West Coast and East Coast companies were drawn into a period of intense, highly publicized rivalry as they sought to dominate the market. David Wragg gives an insight into the conduct of the well-publicized highs and tragic lows of this dramatic story  the extension of the lines to the far north, the building of the Tay and Forth bridges  including the collapse of the first Tay bridge with 72 fatalities  and the repeated bids by the companies to cut the journey times.While he describes the public side of this fascinating story, David Wragg fills in the background, which is no less interesting  the pioneering engineering of the steam age, the massive construction projects, the cut-throat battle for passengers and freight and the deep inter-company rivalries that drove the rapid development of the railways during the Victorian period.
