Keeping the Lakes Line on the right track
Three new maps showcasing the Lakes Line railway route into the Lake District, and the surrounding attractions, have been unveiled at Staveley, Burneside and Kendal stations.
The new maps are larger than the one installed at Windermere station in November, 2012, but are to the same design. Their aim is to help visitors to the area navigate to local businesses and attractions from the stations.
The production of the maps was funded through the See More Cumbria and the Lake District’s Small Grants Scheme and organised through the Community Rail Partnership. The aim of the See More Cumbria and the Lake District programme is to maximise the economic benefit of travel in the county by focussing on the quality of visitor travel to Cumbria’s international destinations, particularly the Lake District.
