A Film, Exhibition and Book Launch
The 30 minute film is the story of those who built the Bramhope Tunnel (1845-1849), the challenges faced and the many lives that were lost. A 64-page book by Angela Leathley will be launched and this describes the hard and dangerous life of navvies during the rapid expansion of the railways in the 19th century. There will also be an exhibition of research materials.
