Discovering Lake District’s lovely villages – Ravenglass
Posted on: 20/06/2019
Lake District is one of the most popular destinations for people across the UK and from further afield. From fun-filled outdoor activities to adventures & awe-inspiring tours, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
We would like to share a hidden gem, a beautiful historic village – Ravenglass.
Ravenglass is a small coastal village and natural harbour in Cumbria, roughly halfway between Barrow-in-Furness and Whitehaven. Historically in Cumberland, it is the only coastal town in the Lake District National Park. It is located at the estuary of three rivers: the Esk, Mite and Irt.
Our beautiful Holiday Park – Port Haverigg (Millom, Cumbria LA18 4LG) is less than 15 miles away
The town dates back to at least the 2nd century when it was an important naval base for the Romans. The Latin name of the settlement is the subject of scholarly debate: believed by some experts to have been Tunnocellum it is often named Glannoventa. It occupied the most southerly point of the Cumbrian coastal defence system, which can be seen as an extension of Hadrian’s Wall and the western extremity of the Roman frontier World Heritage Site.
Tourist attractions include Muncaster Castle and the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway.
Ravenglass is served by Ravenglass railway station on the Cumbrian Coast railway line, with trains to Carlisle and Lancaster. This station is also a terminus of the narrow-gauge Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, which runs inland up Eskdale. This serves both as a tourist attraction and as local transport during its operating season. (Source Wikipedia)
