The Yatton to Witham line was one of the prettiest and best-loved railways in Somerset and is remembered with great affection by locals and railway enthusiasts alike. It ran along the edge of the Mendip Hills through Cheddar, Wells and Shepton Mallet. Today, walkers and cyclists enjoy stretches of it as the Cheddar Valley path. This nostalgic journey along its tracks uses many previously unseen photographs and will bring back memories of the line in its heyday, picturing the trains that once ran on it.
An informative, accessible and portable resource for the train enthusiast as well as the general reader, and a superb souvenir or gift for visitors past and present.
Paul Lawton grew up in Somerset next to the Cheddar Valley line and adds personal insight to this tour through its former stations. He later moved to Wales, writing extensively on the history and railway history of Denbighshire, and is the co-author of three titles in the Lost Lines of Wales series: Rhyl to Corwen, Bangor to Afon Wen and Conwy Valley Line.
