Canal Walks and Railway Walks with Julia Bradbury (2 DVDs)
Two superb BBC documentary series. Exploring lost railways, Julia Bradbury's walks include the Monsal Trail in Derbyshire, the Mawddach Trail, Cornish Coast to Coast lines, Weymouth's Rodwell Trail and others. Her canal walks feature forgotten locks, bridges, aqueducts and tunnels on the Caledonian, Worcester and Birmingham, Kennet and Avon and Llangollen Canals. Text from producer: Double-bill of documentaries in which the BBC presenter presents a collection of walks related to British transport history. In 'Railway Walks' (2008) Julia Bradbury walks what remains of the railway lines closed as a result of the Beeching cuts of the 1960s. With over 4,000 miles of railway and 3,000 stations closed in the decade following the report, many of the routes have become a mecca for ramblers across the country. Walks featured include: 'Derbyshire: Monsal Trail', 'Wales: Mawddach Trail', 'Speyside: Strathspey Railway', 'Cornwall: Coast to Coast Trail', 'Weymouth: Rodwell Trail' and 'Callander: Callander to Loch Tay'. 'Canal Walks' (2010) sees Bradbury uncovering the forgotten locks, bridges, aqueducts and tunnels that comprise a crucial part of the industrial history of Britain. Walks featured include: 'Highlands: Caledonian Canal', 'Birmingham: Worcester and Birmingham Canal', 'Bath: Kennet and Avon Canal' and 'North Wales: Llangollen Canal'.
