Walking Britain’s Lost Railways – 11 December 2020 – 11/12/2020 – Friday – Channel 5

Cotswolds

Rob Bell enters the Cotswolds, beginning from the Regency splendour of Cheltenham, following the Banbury and Cheltenham Direct Railway’s 46-mile path. Many quarries pass through the line, all producing the famous Cotswold stone – some now abandoned and some still supplying sites such as Hampton Court with stone. This railway was never an express road with many hills to navigate, but it opened up this landscape to tourists for the first time. Tourists piled in by rail from the late 1800s to visit photo postcard villages such as Bourton-on-the-Water, creating a new local industry.
