This is looking west towards Threlkeld with a snow topped Blencathra looking down on us.
Bow string bridge designed by Thomas Bouch. The stretch from Threlkeld to Keswick has upper and lower forms of this type of bridge. The path is owned by the Lake District National Park Authority and stretches from Keswick station to Threlkeld. The tunnel in the background is the shorter one of two along the line.
Keswick Station around 12 years after closure.

The station building is a very sorry sight, although this is after it had been got at (by the builders I assume). A little before this the building did not look bad at all considering it was built in the 1860's. Shortly after this was taken the station was demolished and a house built in its place. The houses then had gardens that completely crossed the track bed. This is not a disaster as there is room to the south of this point for a re-alignment.
