Synopsis: Learn about the historical background to more than 50 of Britain's lost railway lines, along with descriptions of the route today for walking and cycling

Thousands of miles of Britain's railways were closed during the 20th century, many following the implementation of the "Beeching Report" in the 1960s and early 1970s. Since then many were converted to footpaths and bikeways. Fortunately, both the keen walker and the railway enthusiast can enjoy these well-worn routes and hidden byways in peace and tranquility. Follow the routes of over 50 long-closed railways across some of the UK's most beautiful countryside, and discover the lost railways of Britain. Each route is highlighted on historical Ordnance Survey mapping, showing which parts can still be followed today. The carefully researched text is accompanied by historical photographs showing each line in operation prior to its closure, as well as specially commissioned images from the present day. Exploring Britain's Lost Railways is an essential armchair companion for every railway enthusiast and outdoor adventurer.

About the Author: Julian Holland is writer and photographer on many railway books, including Britain’s Scenic Railways and The Times Mapping the Railways. His other books include Discovering Scotland's Lost Railways, The Lost Joy of Railways, The Lost Lines of Britain, and Steaming Across Britain.
