Dramway. The Dramway is the local name for the Avon and Gloucestershire Railway that carried coal from the Coalpit Heath collieries near Yate, down to the River Avon in the south, passing though North Common, Oldland Common and Willsbridge.

It was a horse-drawn railway and got its name from the ‘drams’ or carts that carried the coal. In his book, Lawson refers throughout to both the Bristol and Gloucestershire Dramway footpath book and the Avon and Gloucestershire Railway as "the Dramway", and he also uses the word generically, still with capitalisation, for example, "With the metamorphosis of the B&GR from a horse-drawn Dramway to a full-blown steam-driven broad-gauge railway ".

he DramwayPath is a 15km/ 9 mile linear walk that follows sections of the route of a nineteenth century tramway which carried coal from Coalpit Heath in the Bristol coalfield down to the River Avon.

This booklet describes some of the fascinating remains of the Dramway and the features found alongside the linear route of the Dramway Path.
