Default Ticket To Dent

G'day everyone.

A book has recently been released with the above title. I'm tempted to buy it for a relative who lives in Dentdale but £25 seems a bit steep to me for a book about a small station.

Thoughts anyone?

Kind regards,

Richmond Commuter!

Books do tend to be quite expensive these days. I buy most of mine second hand. Is it exclusively about Dent ?

Hi Rob yes the book appears to be exclusively about Dent.

Ah cheers, it's a lovely view from the train,but there doesn't appear to be enough there to fill a whole book about !

Still, it's worth having a flick through to see.

Sorry I can't help with the OP's question, but that comment reminded me of reading a few years ago now, a review of a book on the Waterloo & City line. It was 600+ pages, and the reviewer commented that meant it covered only about 3 yards of line per page of the book.

There's more to Dent than meets the eye.

There's - Dent - proper.

There's Dent Head.

Not many people know this, but it's twinned with an Arab village - Dent al Khavite (true, that can be a a bit of a pain of a place at times)

I'm sure there are others.

Not sure about the Arab village, but I know a chap by the name of Arthur who claims to have distant relatives there.
Would the £25 put much of a dent in the OP's budget?
