Julia Bradbury’s Railway Walks Book

THE six walks featured in the book follow the old tracks, overgrown cuttings and ancient viaducts which are the legacy of ‘The Beeching Axe’.

Following the enormously popular ‘Wainwright Walks’, Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury looks at how the rise and fall of the railways has altered the lives of communities across the country.

Today, many of the thousands of old branch lines which were closed in the 1960s are now the treasured stomping grounds of ramblers and hikers.
