Rails, Trails and Steamy Tales: The history of the Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith Railway

Until

Rails, Trails and Steamy Tales tells the story of the Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith Railway company, the line, and the people who worked and travelled on it.

The exhibition will feature plans, posters, and the wheelbarrow and spade used by Thomas Hoskins to cut the first sod of the line in 1862 – alongside more personal stories, such as the wedding of a couple who met working on the line.

This exhibition makes a perfect start or end point to a walk along the Lake District National Park’s Keswick-Threlkeld trail along the old line.

 

Rails, Trails and Steamy Tales is funded by the Museum’s successful bid to the Culture Recovery Fund’s second round and runs from 5 June – 14 November 2021.
