Event Details

The only railways now remaining in the Lake District proper are the miniature Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway and the much-reduced branch line to Windermere. However, despite their now almost complete disappearance, railways were a significant factor in the growth of tourism to the area and initially provided transportation for the mineral wealth within the area and the immediate surroundings. The talk will show how the railways developed, what is left and what we have lost and will offer some thoughts for the future.
