Suggestions for Holiday Reading

Current issues of two of the monthly magazines contain some Grantham interest:

  • Backtrack for August 2017 (Vol. 31, No. 8) has a 4-page feature of photographs by Derek Penney, several of which feature Grantham or locations nearby (pages 480 to 483, plus cover illustration).
  • 'Great Shot!' in Steam World for August 2017 (Issue 362) has a photograph of Grantham's turntable taken in 1958 (pages 34-35).  "... but there wasn't a turntable at Grantham after 1951,"  we hear you say.  And you're right of course, but the photograph wasn't taken at Grantham.  It's at Melton Constable, in Norfolk, where Grantham's 70-foot turntable was moved for further service after its foundation, on the site of the old Victorian workhouse, gave way.
