About the Author

A former professional soldier, Murray Naylor has long been fascinated by railways, including how they originated and how they have today been developed into a vital communication service. In recent years he has cultivated a similar interest in some of Britain’s medieval churches, in particular our great Anglican cathedrals and works as a volunteer guide at York Minster. He lives in North Yorkshire and has travelled widely to fulfil these two interests.
