The railway's green cultural heritage

The planting of parks and gardens along the country's railway lines was extensive for over a hundred years, from the mid-1800s until the 1970s. The research project The railway's green cultural heritage investigate how and why state and private railways' planting activities came about, were organised, and ultimately dismantled.
