Producing almost 20 wonderful books about Norfolk and Suffolk railways they were the best double act on the tracks. Derek James reports
When the names Richard Adderson and Graham Kenworthy appear on the cover of a book about our railways you know you are in a treat…because they know their subject inside out.
Every word and every photograph is researched with an expert eye for detail.
The latest one in the wonderful Country Railway Routes by Middleton Press is Wymondham to Wells: Featuring the Mid-Norfolk Railway… but there will not be any more by the two of them.
Graham died just before the book was published last year, but despite failing health had been fully involved in the production of this volume.

This was just as much a joint effort as the previous ones,” said his co-author Richard.
As with so many of his generation, Graham had always been interested in railways, and he joined the railway industry as an engineering student after leaving school in Coventry in 1960.
Graham moved to Norwich five years later and stayed, mainly employed in various civil engineering roles…gaining a first-hand knowledge of the railways of East Anglia.
When he retired in 1996 Graham moved into the world of book production, and in 1998 he and Richard Adderson joined forces to produce Branch Lines around Cromer.
