The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway is the longest and oldest narrow gauge railway in the Lake District National Park, known affectionately by locals as the La’al Ratty.
it is a popular heritage visitor attraction offering visitors a unique experience to discover one of Wainwright’s favourite journeys, traversing seven miles from the coast, through iconic woodland, riverside and mountain scenery. The railway has four main steam locomotives, including the oldest working 15” gauge locomotive in the world, River Irt.

A few years later an artist called Joseph Farington used a copy of Gray’s journal to follow in his footsteps, painting the scenes that Gray had described.
Just a few years ago John Murray, a publisher from London, inherited Gray’s original notebooks and decided to do exactly what Farington did over 200 years before. He found the locations and took digital photographs of the views.
Using this app, you can now find the locations where Gray wrote, Farington painted and Murray took his photos. The app contains an entry for each location painted by Farington and described by Gray, plus a map and a few hints to help you find the locations for yourself.
The words, pictures and photo's inspired an exhibition at the Wordsworth Museum, Grasmere, The Lake District, Cumbria, called Pen, Paint & Pixels. Why not come along and have a look?
