Description:
Widely known as England's most scenic line, the Settle & Carlisle Railway was built by the Midland Railway between 1869 and 1876 as part of its quest to forge its own, independent route to Scotland. It is, uniquely for a railway in the UK, a Conservation Area - with special protection for its viaducts, tunnels, bridges and stations. By walking all or parts of this historic route, you get the chance to get up close to the railway's magnificent architecture - but also to see the lonely and lofty fells, and stunning scenery from the limestone Dales through the Pennines to the lush Eden Valley. In the company of this knowledgeable author, you'll discover centuries' worth of history: Roman remains, medieval castles, and the Romani who still meet at the annual Appleby Horse Fair.
