Settle and Carlisle

the line 'The bridges over Arden Hill, then ???'

runs

"The bridges over Arten Gill, Dent Head and Batty Moss"

Batty Moss being another name for Ribblehead

Viaducts on the Settle Carlisle

I love these songs, like Rob I first discovered the recordings on vinyl back in the early seventies with Requiem for Steam on the Big Ben label. I have since bought two copies of each of the individual cds and was given the compilation cd as a present. I was also delighted to meet Dave at Broadstairs Folk Week a couple of years back. The magic of the songs is that they are so obviously written by someone who has 'been there, done that' and not by an armchair enthusiast/poet.

If you are in any way railway minded or have a nostalgia for or interest in the days of steam then these are a must for you. They are available from Dave's website along with a few clips to whet your appetite. Don't just sit there - order them now - here:- Dave Goulder's website

Are EMI involved with the book?
