Let’s find out some of the history…

Way back in the 1850’s, the Furness Railway was developed. This was at the height of the industrial revolution. Its main purpose was to transport coal and iron ore deposits around England from the mines in Cumberland and the Furness district.

This was the beginning of an amazing story for Lakeside Railway…
