This series of short books covers the major topics in British history since 1700. The approach is one which integrates narrative, sources, questions and activities for the practice of a range of historical skills. The narrative and the wide variety of sources are aimed at those of average ability. The whole series provides an evidence-based approach suitable for GCSE students. This volume focuses on transport. Long distance travel in 1700 was neither speedy nor comfortable. Yet by 1850 the railway age had dawned and with it came speed and comfort, day trips, fresher food and cheaper consumer goods. "Transport 1700-1850" explores the development of the ways and means of transport of both people and goods, from the rutted roads of the early 18th century, through the great canal-building era, to the vast rails network that dominated mid 19th-century Britain.
