West Country Tramways

Join Tram Historian Peter Davey in his quest to find what remains of West Country Tramways, on this enjoyable journey around one of England’s most picturesque regions.

Your tour extends from Cheltenham in the north right through to Camborne and Redruth in Cornwall, and it is illustrated by a blend of rare archive photographs and modern film. Along the way, specialist contributors add their own fascinating comments.

Highlights include the discovery of three rare survivors from the golden age of Tramways: a Horse Tram in Gloucester; Cheltenham No. 21, which was relocated at Crich, then Bournemouth, and is now back in its home town, and Swindon No. 13, currently residing in the old GWR works.

There is also a visit to Seaton’s popular present-day narrow-gauge system; the Lynton and Lynmouth water-balanced Cliff Railway in North Devon; Weston-super-Mare’s attractive holiday toast-rack cars; Taunton’s unusual single line; the city routes of Exeter, one of whose Trams is saved at Seaton; and the large Bogie trams of Plymouth and Torquay.

This is a nostalgic treat for transport enthusiasts everywhere, and it will be enjoyed by anyone with a love of the West Country.
