You can sit and watch the film "a Brief encounter " if you have the time!! The staff are very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our visit very much. We have visited Carnforth Station Heritage Centre a number of times over the past twelve months, each time we have witness scaffolding and secriuty fencing all around the site blocking the access to the defribullator.. This is surely wrong to stop access to a emergancy aid? The place looks run down and looks as though nothing is being done, just fenced off, the grass is over grown in the car park looks like know one cares..
What a shame The whole centre was highly evocative of a time that has almost been forgotten. The railway information and exhibits were meticulously displayed, although there was so much information displayed some of it was out of eyesight, and difficult to read for those of us with ageing eyes. The Brief Encounter rooms were fascinating, again a beautiful display of a wonderful film.

Abstract This paper reports findings from a large-scale, multi-disciplinary, mixed methods project which explores empirically and theoretically the rapidly growing but poorly understood and barely regulated phenomenon of cosmetic surgery tourism CST. Keywords Cosmetic surgery tourism. Addressing the fundamental question of what Afghanistan itself meant to the British at the time, he draws on extensive archival research to show how knowledge of Afghanistan was built, refined and warped by an evolving colonial state.
This knowledge informed policy choices and cast Afghanistan in a separate legal and normative universe.
Beginning with the disorganised exploits of nineteenth-century explorers and ending with the cold strategic logic of the militarised 'scientific frontier', this book tracks the nineteenth-century origins of contemporary policy 'expertise' and the forms of knowledge that inform interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere today. It is essential reading for all students of modern Afghanistan and for those concerned with colonial knowledge formations and the history of imperialism. In recent years scholars have explored the details of the dialectical relationship between colonial knowledge and imperial policy.
Bayly continues the work begun by Christopher Bayly on British information gathering in India, pushing the investigation north of the Durand Line into Afghanistan. Bayly reconstructs the images of Afghanistan upon which British officials drew in crafting their policy decisions. After discussing the work of the founding figures, he tracks the emergence after of a more unified concept of the Afghan polity.
This book is an important contribution to the histories of British imperialism and Anglo-Afghan relations and to the re-historicization of the international relations discipline. Speaking to multiple audiences with interests across the historical and thematic spectrum, this book is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand why Afghanistan looks the way it does in , and more importantly, why many view it the way they do. Avinash Paliwal Source: International Affairs. Benjamin D. In fact, it is as far removed from orthodox military histories of the Anglo-Afghan experience as it is possible to be.
More than anything it chooses to intellectualise the subject in an uncommon fashion and in the process delivers an entirely refreshing approach to what is in danger of becoming a tired and unimaginative field of study.
