About the Author

Jeff Vinter read history at Exeter University, where he joined the university's Railway Society and started to explore the West of England's closed rail network in the wake of Dr Beeching's infamous axe. In the 1990s, he wrote four volumes in the Railway Walks series and, more recently, has acted as consultant to a number of television series about disused railway lines, most notably "Along These Lines," "Railway Walks," and most recently "James May's Toy Stories." He was president of the Railway Ramblers Society and now oversees their website, as well as regularly conducting talks and walks along railway routes across the country.

1.0 out of 5 stars Check if there is a lot for your area 20 Jan 2012
By V
Barely any info on my area, and gives map references rather than names. You would be better off googling your area and train lines you can walk

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 15 Jun 2011
This book is a great idea and a good opportunity for some in depth writing about railway line cycling. Info is pitifully short on in-depth information. Maybe the author could get people 'on the ground' to contribute fuller descriptions for their area, and even add new ones (I'm happy to volunteer for Tyne and Wear). I wouldn't be confident planning ahead with the current level of info.

This is a great book, starts with grid ref, so if your not good with a map then take note as some you will need to be able to. Lots of different and varied places to go, simple easy instructions.
