Jeff Vinter, Consultant to the BBC's Railway Walks series, provides comprehensive details of every disused railway line in Wales that is now a public walk or cycle trail. He covers everything from the earliest tram-roads to recently closed colliery lines - all set against the magnificent backdrop of the Welsh landscape and offering an insight into the country's industrial past. From the tunnels of Saundersfoot Railway on the Pembrokeshire coast to the long slog of the Brecon and Merthyr Railway's famous Seven Mile Bank, there is plenty here to delight both railway enthusiasts and walkers looking for unfamiliar views.

Richly illustrated, this book is replete with photographs of the surrounding landscape and detailed guides on the history of each branch line from the Rhondda Railway to Snowdonia. Jeff Vinter takes us on a fascinating journey through the remote landscapes of Wales, past old tracks and ancient viaducts to discover hidden treasures. There are notes on the best and most convenient pubs en route, and local public transport is summarised for the benefit of those who want to walk one way and ride the other.

Railway Walks: Wales is a must-have guide for anyone interested in Welsh railway heritage, or for all those who love to explore the hidden landscape of Wales.
