About this product
- DescriptionJeff Vinter, consultant to the BBC's popular Railway Walks series, here guides the walker along ten of the best railway paths in the south of England, ranging from the Camel Trail in scenic rth Cornwall to the densely wooded tracks of the Forest of Dean, and taking in the Downs Link across the rolling countryside of West Sussex and Surrey, as well as the Plym Valley Railway Path and Cycle Route on the southern slopes of Dartmoor. The detailed description of each walk includes OS grid references, helpful maps and illustrations, as well as comprehensive transport and refreshments information. For those walkers who wish to explore more, further walks, preserved railways and museums are suggested, which shed light on the area's industrial past. The 'armchair walker' is also catered for, with a full historical description of each line and a resume of its regeneration after closure. Together with Railway Walks: GWR & SR , all you will need are a map and a pair of stout boots - and some reasonable weather - in order to enjoy this fascinating and rather different aspect of the English countryside.
