This fascinating book charts the development of various railways in the Hampton and Kempton Waterworks sites in southwest London.

It describes the role they played in supplying coal to the steam powered water pumping engines and the variety of railway gauges employed. The book also describes the unique Kempton Park Racecourse station and is illustrated with many fascinating photographs, maps, and drawings throughout.

“Bob Bond is to be congratulated for writing a history of these important but lost railways and their contribution in ensuring a clean water supply to London in the early part of the 20th century. We are also very grateful that all proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated towards HKWR’s restoration project”.  Hampton Kempton Waterworks Railway Trustee, Colin Clode
