Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0752451030, Paperback)

Jeff Vinter, previous chairman of Railway Ramblers and consultant on the BBC’s Railway Walks series, guides the walker along 10 of the best railway paths in the South of England, ranging from the Plym Valley Railway Path and Cycle Route on the southern slopes of Dartmoor to the densely-wooded tracks of the Forest of Dean, and taking the Downs Link across the rolling countryside of West Sussex and Surrey, and the Camel Trail in Cornwall. The detailed description of each walk includes OS grid references, helpful maps and illustrations, and comprehensive information about transport and refreshment facilities. 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 each chapter being prefaced with a full historical description of the line and a resumé of its regeneration after closure. Together with Railway Walks: GWR & SR, all you 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.
