A new book has been published featuring the life of railwayman Percy Parsons who worked on the Somerset and Dorset line from Evercreech to Burnham-On-Sea for fifty years.

Percy started in 1937 at Edington Burtle as a junior porter and, after a gap for WW2, worked his way up to station supervisor at Bridgwater station, retiring in 1987.

This new book details his career and experiences on the S&D branch and the staff he worked with over the years.

Many of his incredible historic photographs from the whole period are featured in the new book.

Written by Percy and assisted by Kathleen Cowles, it has 72 pages with a mixture of colour and black and white photos.

Percy died aged 96 in August this year so the book is an incredible tribute to him and the friends he made over the years.

The book can be ordered for £12.95 online here.
