Jeff Vinter, previous chairman of Railway Ramblers and consultant on the BBC’s Railway Walks series, provides a detailed guide to 10 of the best railway walks in the territory of the former London Midland and Scottish Railway. These range from the Midland Railway’s express line through the Peak district to the incredible Cromford and High Peak Railway, built before railway engineering had fully evolved, incorporating a series of level sections connected by mountainous inclines. Between these two extremes, the rambler can explore the Brampton Valley Way in Northamptonshire, with its gentle countryside and stone villages, or a network of lines radiating from Lancaster into the delightful Lune Valley. 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 10 lines. Railway walks offer something for everybody and with Railway Walks: LMS you can be sure that you’ll be able to make the most of this fascinating and rather different aspect of the English countryside.
Jeff Vinter was the chairman of the Railway Ramblers and now oversees their website. He was the chief consultant for the Railway Walks series, selecting the routes for the series and providing historical information.
