Deadwater begins on the Scotland / England border and ends at Chester castle on the Welsh Border. It’s a journey of 235 miles and 27,000 feet of elevation.
The last train departed from Deadwater in 1956, after 98 years of service. The old stone platform and station building are still there, though the track has since been reclaimed by nature. It’s from Deadwater that your six day Journey from Scotland to Wales begins. The route has been split into six different stages. Each stage has been subtitled with a feature that stands out on that particular stage.
