Ravenglass & Eskdale Steam Railway
Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway
Both of our staions can be reached by good road links and can easily be found by Satnav.
Ravenglass - CA18 1SW
Ravenglass nestles just off the main A595. Brown information signs direct visitors to the boundaries of the Western Lake District from the M6 junction 36 and junction 40. Sat Nav - key in CA18 1SW.
From M6 junction 36 follow the brown Western Lake District signs to Broughton-in-Furness, passing Newby Bridge on the A590 and turning right at Greenodd onto the A5092. From Broughton follow the A595 to Silecroft T junction (turn right) and beyond.
From M6 junction 40 follow the brown Western Lake District signs past Keswick and Bassenthwaite Lake on the A66 towards Cockermouth. Turn left at the Cockermouth roundabout onto the A5086. Follow the A5086 to Egremont where it joins the A595. Turn left for Ravenglass following the A595.
From Ambleside and Coniston, consider using the A593 passing through Torver before arriving at Broughton. From Windermere and Bowness take the A592 to Newby Bridge.
Various scenic routes offer spectacular journeys. From the central lakes consider the dramatic Wrynose and Hardknott passes route to Eskdale but be aware of the 1-in-three ascents and descents, single track road and hairpin bends. Also look for Birker Fell, and the Corney Fell options on any detailed map.
