From Hellgill to Bridge End: Aspects of Economic and Social Change in the Upper Eden Valley, 1840-95 by Margaret Shepherd
Description of From Hellgill to Bridge End ... the Upper Eden Valley,...
Originally an academic dissertation this very interesting book will provide a wealth of detail for anyone interested in the local history of the Eden Valley as well as family historians. It plots the many economic and social changes in the valley during the second half of the 19th century, which for many of us older folk was in the lifetimes of our grandparents and great-grandparents.
From Hellgill, where the infant River Eden emerges from the fells into the Mallerstang valley, through Nateby and Kirkby Stephen to Bridge End at Brough-under-Stainmore we can follow many processes of change in the way people lived and earned their living. How many today know that there were still coal mines around Stainmore as recently as that? And of course, it was in that period that they built a railway over the pass from County Durham.
