About This Book

In Railway Walks: LNER, Jeff Vinter, previous Chairman of Railway Ramblers and consultant on the BBC's 'Railway Walks' series, provides an indispensable guide to ten carefully selected railway paths coveted from lines once owned by the London and North Eastern Railway. From the quiet byways of East Anglia to the dramatic scenery of the North Yorkshire coast and the moorlands of Weardale, the routes are described in detail, providing everything necessary for enjoyable days out, whether you are a keen walker, a railway enthusiast or just looking for somewhere special to take the family. Descriptions include OS grid references, helpful maps and illustrations, and comprehensive information about transport and refreshment facilities. Suggestions for further explorations into each area's industrial past are also offered. Even the 'armchair walker' is catered for, with well-researched history being provided for each of the ten lines. Railway walks offer something for everybody and with Railway Walks: LNER you can be sure that you'll be able to make the most of this fascinating and rather different aspect of the English.
