Synopsis

Discovering Britain's First Railways A Guide to Horse-Drawn Tramroads and Waggonways by Dr. Jones Mark

Discovering Britain's First Railways is devoted to the history, rediscovery and exploration of Britain's first railways, examining its network of over 1,500 miles of horse-drawn tramroads and waggonways. This essential guide not only describes their origins and ways of working, but opens up a world of discovery in a little-documented part of Britain's transport history. Tramways across the Britain, from Cornwall to Scotland, are documented and their remains detailed in a lively and informative style, making this an ideal reference book for social historians and railway enthusiasts as well as an invaluable walking guide with routes and maps around the country. Unlike a lot of former British Railways branch lines, many of these routes are now public rights of way enabling walkers and often cyclists to explore some spectacular and hitherto little-known countryside on a safe and level path.
