Miles of history

7th February 1997 at 00:00
South Wales and West Railway has produced a guide for educational groups listing all the historic sites along the 75-mile route from Weymouth to Bristol.

These include everything from Dorchester's Tutankhamun exhibition and Bath's Roman attractions to a working Railtrack signal box at Yeovil Pen Mill. The brochure folds out into an illustrated map which can be used as a journey planner. Copies from: Chris Gibb, SWW, Western House, Swindon SN1 1BY. South Wales and West Railway also offers reduced rate travel for groups of 10 or more and 25 per cent off the normal cheap day return fare for adults accompanying groups. Early bookings are advised.
