Old Railway Walk

A few snaps from a walk down a disused railway at Keswick in the Lake District, UK.

It's been turned into a pleasant footpath, with numerous small bridges over the River Greta. It was used to transport coke (not the drinking stuff) and also bobbins for the cotton industry.

A bridge through a tunnel:

Very Old Graffiti?

After reaching Keswick itself, a small walk (via Cumbrian sausage and mash and a pint of Snecklifter in one of the numerous pubs) takes you to Derwent Water:

If I'd been feeling braver I'd have just climbed over this gate and trudged through the fields down to town. I'm more of a stroller:

These are very lovely photos. I always enjoy a nice walk in the country. Thanks.

Peter: 11th Jul 2006 - 16:56 GMT

the mountains look lovely; particularly in the last photo.

Thanks Catherine & Peter.

It was a bright February day and, amid the scenery, it was good to be reminded that industrial heritage doesn't belong solely to the cities.

It is wonderfull to be shown the true beauty of keswick! Long may it live on.

A favourite walk, now that I'm knocking on a bit. Flat and scenic, capped by a meal at the Horse & Farrier in Threlkeld, and the bus back to Keswick. Dreamland!

Ameya Yokocho


Translated as "Candy Store Alley", Ameyayokocko used to be the spot for black market goods during WWII. Now the market, located across from Ueno Station, has over 500 vendors selling everything from fish to Iranian calling cards.
