The impact of the railways

Newspapers could be sent from London all over the country.

Seaside towns developed; the railways made cheap day trips possible

People were able to travel greater distances for leisure & to work

Turnpike Trusts, canals & stage coach companies could not compete & went bankrupt.

Social & Economic Impact of the Railways

Railway engineering towns grew up, E.g. Crewe & Doncaster.

Townspeople were able to receive meat, fish, milk and vegetables brought in whilst they were still fresh by the railways.

Industry grew, because the railways needed coal & iron; railways in turn allowed factories to transport their goods to markets.

The Post was speeded up

People became more interested in politics & this led to the growth of political parties

How do i get a high grade

How do I get a high grade?

  • If you simply explain what changes the railways had you will get either a Level 4 or 5.

  • If you write a conclusion that fully explains which was the most or the least important change then you could get a Level 6.

  • In order to get a Level 7 you must organise the changes under headings like social, economic and cultural.

  • Organise your work with proper paragraphs that start off with an important point or heading.
