Following the huge success of Wainwright Walks, Julia Bradbury once again dons her walking boots, this time to trudge the railway lines that have become the legacy of ‘The Beeching Axe’.
In the 1960s thousands of railway stations were closed and many of these old branch lines are now treasured by ramblers all over the country. Providing hours of beautiful walks steeped in history and offering an insight into industrial Britain, Julia looks at how the rise and fall of the railways has altered the lives of communities across the country.
