The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway

The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is one of the oldest and longest narrow gauge railways in England, known affectionately as La’al Ratty meaning “little railway“ in olde Cumbrian dialect. It was 105 years ago in April 1913 that the original 3ft line closed and in 1915 the new 15in La’al Ratty was born. Our heritage steam engines transport passengers from Ravenglass, the only coastal village located in two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Lake District National Park and Frontiers of the Roman Empire Hadrians Wall, to Dalegarth for Boot some 210ft above sea level.

Muncaster Castle

For groups, for individuals and families, for days out or memorable special occasions, Muncaster offers an unforgettable experience to all in an idyllic setting amongst the Western Lake District fells. Come visit us soon.

Hardknott Fort

This remote and dramatically-sited fort was founded under Hadrian’s rule in the 2nd century.

Well-marked remains include the headquarters building, commandant’s house and bath house. The site of the parade ground survives beside the fort, and the road which Hardknott guarded can be traced for some distance as an earthwork.
