About

Welcome to the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway here in the picturesque Leven Valley at the southern end of Windermere.

We hope that while visiting this website you can get a feel for the rich and varied history of the local area and of the line itself.

We feel justifiably proud of our historic branch line over which we have had custody since 1970 when we took over its operation. Our small band of permanent staff and volunteers have worked tirelessly to protect and improve our railway.

Please explore these pages to find out more about what’s on offer at Haverthwaite Station, the railway’s history and our collection of locomotives and rolling stock…
