Exploring Britain's Lost Railways
Available in Stock
Thousands of miles of Britain's railways were closed during the 20th century, many following the infamous 'Beeching Report' in the 1960s and early 1970s. Since then, some of the old trackbeds have been converted to footpaths and cycleways – hidden byways through beautiful, tranquil countryside. Richly illustrated with maps and photographs, old and new, this book explores 50 of these routes, outlining their history and describing what they have to offer today's walkers, cyclists and railway enthusiasts.
