Discover and explore over 50 of the country's lost railway lines through historical and present-day photographs, commentaries and descriptions of the route today for walking and cycling.Each route is highlighted on historical Ordnance Survey mapping, showing which parts can still be followed today.

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 have been converted to footpaths and cycleways.Fortunately, both the keen walker and the railway enthusiast can enjoy these well-worn routes and hidden byways in peace and tranquillity.

Follow the routes of over 50 long-closed railways across some of our most beautiful countryside and discover the lost railways of Britain - an essential armchair companion for every railway enthusiast and outdoor adventurer.
