Battlefield Line


The last remaining part of the former Ashby & Nuneaton Joint Railway, opened in 1873. The railway captures the very essence of a country line, with steam, diesel and railcar train services along with small stations meandering along a single track line. One of Leicestershire’s best kept secrets.
