If you venture to the southern end of Lake Windermere you’ll find yourself at Lakeside pier and next to it is the terminus of The Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway. It’s a preserved line, running over part of the track bed that used to connect Lake Windermere with the rail route to Lancaster and Barrow in Furness. In it’s full glory it would have been a fantastic tourism asset as well as taking quite a few cars off the roads of a busy tourist destination. But ‘experts’ thought otherwise and it’s now left to a determined band of enthusiasts to keep treasured routes like theses alive alive.
