Rail closure protests of the 1960’s and 70’s’

A new BTPHG Project has commenced! Following the purchase of a photograph on E-Bay showing BTP making an arrest of a protester at Summerseat railway station in Lancashire in 1967, Rob Davison wondered if there were more of these protests during the Beeching era. Now the proverbial ‘can of worms’ has been opened and information has been gathered from a variety of sources into long-forgotten but at the time, vociferous and sometimes violent public protests about rail closures.

Rob would be interested in hearing from anyone who can assist him. He can be contacted at rob.davison@btphg.org.uk
