Send a tip on a railway walk for the chance to win a prize worth £200

Britain boasted one of the most far-reaching railway networks in Europe until the early 1960s, when the “Beeching Axe” cut thousands of miles of lines and stations to reduce the cost of upkeep. These abandoned tracks, cuttings and viaducts now provide a corridor for nature and some great walking – more than 4,000 miles of former railway line are open to walkers and cyclists – such as the Cuckoo Trail in East Sussex, the Strawberry Line in Somerset and the Monsal Trail in Derbyshire. We’d like to hear about your favourite railway ramble.

If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.

Keep your tip to about 100 words

The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.

We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.

The competition closes on 27 April at 9am BST
