Today we visited Eskdale in good weather offering great photo opps.

Starting at Ravenglass on the coast we took our bikes on the historic Eskdale and Ravenglass railway which is a quasi volunteer operated narrow guage railway originally established to transport iron ore in the 19th century. This little railway chugs happily through some stunning scenery. At end of the line we collected our bikes and ventured along some almost vertical roads to visit the well preserved Roman fort at Hardknott.

This is the Roman Fort at Hardknott. This is very well preserved, no doubt aided by remote location. One of the most impressive Roman sites I have visited in Britain.
