  Nigel Chadwick

This small coastal village and natural harbour situated within the Lake District National Park lies on the estuary of three rivers, the Esk, Mite and Irt. It is the terminus for the preserved Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, a very popular tourist attraction.

The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway

"The most beautiful train journey in England"

The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, or "La'al Ratty" as it affectionately known, was opened in 1875 to bring ion ore from Eskdale to the Furness Railway at Ravenglass.

The line was purchased by a preservation society and converted to a narrow gauge of 15 inches.

The railway carries passengers from the old Roman port of Ravenglass seven miles along the Eskdale Valley to Eskdale (Dalegarth).

Trains are hauled by either steam or diesel engines.
