All who love the Lake District will enjoy this lecture.

The renowned Cumbrian Coastal Railway flanks Morecambe Bay and the Cumbrian coast amidst beautiful scenery.  David Hindle’s lecture is a well-illustrated account of its origins and social history and how it has been used for pleasure throughout successive generations.

Today the line is crucial for the well-being of the many small towns and villages strung along the Cumbrian coast.  It has also become a source of enjoyment and pleasure to thousands. Fell walkers, cyclists, photographers, steam train buffs, naturalists and birdwatchers, as well as ordinary holidaymakers, all use the services regularly.  All who love the Lake District will enjoy this lecture.
