Backtracking Around Millbay, Saltash & The Tamar


In this follow up to his popular and fascinating Backtracking Around Lipson, Friary and the Laira, railway photographer Bernard Mills puts his own spin on the Chris Robinson’s Plymouth Then & Now format. This volume, featuring over 300 images in full colour from cover to cover, takes us on a tour through tracks and time around the Tamar.


Painstakingly researched as ever, Bernard Mills’ second volume of Backtracking takes us on a journey around the western reaches of Plymouth and beyond, complementing the last tome which took us east around Friary, Laira and the Plym. Over fifty years ago, about the time Beeching was wielding his axe, this long-serving railwayman took his trusty camera and set about recording the last days of steam, the advent of diesel and the changing industrial landscape. Returning to capture those same scenes recently, Bernard shows us just how dramatic many of those changes have been.
