Railway Walks


Julia Bradbury

Publisher Frances Lincoln

ISBN: 978 0 7112 3167 2

Price: £12.99


This 144 page A5 soft back colour book details six lengthy walks along closed railways, with two in Scotland and one each in Wales, Dorset, Derbyshire and Cornwall.

Each walk has a schematic map (although walkers may be advised to take an OS map with them as well) and this is married to a selection of pictures, and text detailing the history of the line and a description of the route and what to look out for.

This book is one of those that makes you want to get up and go and visit the lines detailed and is an enjoyable text. It is also a decent transportable size. Time to dust off the walking boots perhaps?
