Disused Railways

The List of DISUSED RAILWAYS  (with MAP)


'Lists as many accessible disused railways that have been converted to Greenways as we can find. With 2026 looming with the closure of registering new bridleways and paths, and the danger encountered by road riding, equestrians see this as a valuable traffic free resource ... If you know of a railway line near you that is accessible to horse traffic and/or carriage driving, please let us have the information.'

'The UK's specialist club for exploring old railways: it organises walks throughout the country for varying ages and abilities, usually on disused railways but occasionally on an old canal or even Roman road. '

'Inspired by the BBC series, Railway Walks with Julia Bradbury, this section aims to document the surviving remnants of Britain's many disused railways (unfortunately without the assistance of Julia Bradbury). Using photos and text, the course of each lost railway line is described in detail, enhanced where possible by photos taken during the line's heyday.'
