Daniel's Railway Walks

Welcome to my site!

Thanks for stopping by, let me introdure this site. As a person with an avid interest of the railways and exploring the countryside, I thought I would create this for me to share my experiences while exploring the UK by rail. My aim for my adventures is to head by rail to a station, then walk to another while exploring the places around it. Feel free to take on some of these walks for yourself if you find one you like. You can see below for my latest posts, or use the links at the top of the page to find some of my former posts.

The station dates back to 1897, constructed by the Midland Railway on their Sheffield to Barnsley Line... read more

Conisbrough to Mexborough - 17/03/2019

As this is the first post in the series of walks I hope to do, I thought I'd cover a route that I have wanted to do for some time. Even though it's not really the sort of route I wish to do in the series, I think it came out well. See the video above to see a visual of the route, and at the bottom of this post, you can find a route map if you want to take on this route by yourself. We begin our walk at Conisbrough station. The station opened in 1849, originally constructed 140 metres down the line... read more
