Along Country Lines Summary

Along Country Lines by Paul Atterbury

Along Country Lines highlights some of the best journeys you can undertake in Britain. It includes a mixture of existing lines and lost routes to build a picture of a rural Britain that is held in great affection.

The book recaptures the people and the industries that used the lines, through a rich mixture of photographs, postcards, posters, ephemera and documents. Special coverage of towns and villages at the start and finish of each route highlights places of interest. Along Country Lines is for everyone with an interest in Britain's landscapes and history, combining beauty, history, nostalgia and great stories to make an essential read.
