Railway Paths


Welcome to the website for Railway Paths Ltd.
We are a specialist organisation which owns and manages a portfolio of former railway land to provide routes, roads and paths suitable for cycling, walking, horseriding and wheel-chair use.

We also manage the properties held by our sister charity Sustrans, and welcome enquiries to sell, lease or develop surplus land owned by either organisation.

We are a Registered Charity (No. 1070003) and a Company Limited by Guarantee (No. 3535618)
