Dr Greg Morse is the author of John Betjeman: Reading the Victorians, a fairly lengthy thing that led to something much shorter and more interesting for Shire. It was here that he first explored the poet’s love of railways, indulging his own love too, as a copper-capped Swindon boy born and bred. Greg works for the railway industry as a safety officer and has written numerous books and articles on rail history and rail safety development.
