Haverthwaite Railway

The Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway is a 3.2-mile-long heritage railway in Cumbria, that runs through the awe-inspiring scenery of the Leven Valley. Beginning in the small village of Haverthwaite in the stunning Lake District, the line runs through the beautiful scenery of majestic lakes and flowing rivers, to its terminus in Lakeside at the southern end of Windermere, the largest natural lake in England. The Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway originally opened in 1869, as a branch line of the Furness Railway and a local passenger train. The line was closed to passengers in 1965 and then shut down completely two years later. As a result, a group of rail enthusiasts formed the Lakeside Railway Society with the aim of preserving the line, and it was eventually reopened in May 1973. Today, it is a popular tourist attraction which takes its passengers on a delightful journey back to a bygone era of rail travel.
