Tracking lost landscapes and forgotten worlds

From the 1960’s the axe fell on 4,000 miles of Britain’s rail network. Now, decades later, Rob Bell is going on journey to uncover those lost railway lines. Every week Rob will explore a different line; experiencing the hidden landscapes, lost infrastructure and forgotten worlds that disappeared when the line closed. He’ll experience how, once gone, the lost line affected the community, industry and lifestyle of the area. But Rob will also be celebrating the new life that’s been created, from the old railway stations that are now beautiful homes to restored signal boxes and the impressive heritage railways that have sprung up all over the country. Across the series we’ll see Britain in a new and surprising way; whether it is in rural Wales, the Lake District, or the north of Scotland.
