Jeff Vinter, consultant to the BBC's popular Railway Walks series, here provides a detailed guide to ten 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 developed, incorporating a series of level sections connected by mountainous inclines. Between these two extremes, the rambler can explore the Bramption Valley Way in Northamptonshire, with its gentle countryside and stone villages, or a network of lines radiating from Lancaster into the delightful Lune Valley. The detailed description of each walk includes OS grid references, helpful maps and illustrations, comprehensive transport and refreshments information. Further walks, preserved railways and museums are suggested which shed light on the area's industrial past, while even the 'armchair walker' is not forgotten, as each chapter is prefaced with a full historical description of the line and a resume of its regeneration after closure. Whether you are interested in railway history, industrial archaeology or just strolling in the English countryside, Railway Walks: LMS will provide you with a day out that is both informative and enjoyable.
