Lake District World Heritage status and Euro value could bring tourist boost




Lake District World Heritage status and Euro value could bring tourist boost

Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway mascot La'al Ratty

World Heritage Status and high-value Euros mean a top Cumbrian tourist attraction is expecting bumper demand for the rest of the summer holidays.

Leaders at the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway believe that the Lake District's new profile - along with strong Euro to pound conversion rates - mean an influx of visitors.

The long narrow gauge railway is encouraging families to take advantage of a number of initiatives they have on, including "Kids Go Free" Fridays throughout the rest of this month as well as September 1.

PODIUM: World Heritage Site status will bring many benefits to the Lake District



I STILL find it difficult to think of the English Lake District as a World Heritage Site. When I walk, talk, or drive, I'm still smiling. Will I ever get over it? I hope not!

Strangely, I'd never considered being at the 41st World Heritage Committee, until I arrived in Krakow. Its global significance shouted from all directions; flags lining the streets, rooftop police marksmen and attending ambassadors and dignitaries from a vast array of countries.

I was humbled and honoured to represent the Lake District and its Partnership. This was the United Nations in operation, coming together to celebrate world assets transcending political and geographic boundaries.

WALK: one of the Lake District's grandest objects



ACCORDING to Alfred Wainwright, Blencathra is “one of the grandest objects in the Lake District,” writes JOHN EDMONDSON. This circular ramble goes from Mungrisdale and visits this popular fell and three more Wainwrights. The village name, which is pronounced ‘mun-grize-dale,’ means valley where young pigs graze. 'Porklings' no longer run wild on these fell slopes but on a clear day there are spectacular views and the route is easy to follow.

Park at the roadside between Beckside and Mungrisdale and start from the village hall. Map reference NY 363 301, postcode CA11 0XR.
