The Dramway was a horse-drawn coal carriage route. The 9-mile nineteenth-century tramway carried coal from Coalpit down to the river Avon. Today the remains of the Avon oGloucester railway and the collieries it was built to serve can still be seen along the route, most of which can still be walked despite the railway being closed for nearly 140 years. South Gloucestershire Council has converted much of it into a historical footpath.

Using a mixture of maps and archive and modern photographs, Peter Lawson has created a photographic journey along the Dramway. Intended to be both a historical record and an aid to people walking along the route, this informative book discusses artefacts on the way, including canal architecture (the Dramway was built by canal companies), several collieries and, of course, the railway itself.
