Walks from Ratty – Guided Walks Programme

Part of the ‘Walks from Ratty’ exhibition, these walks are those featured in Alfred Wainwright’s Walks from Ratty book which has been recently updated and is available to buy in our Ravenglass & Dalegarth Booking Offices.

There is no fee to take part in the walks but please do give a donation to your walk’s leader which will benefit the Ravenglass Railway Museum (Reg’d charity 505295) and Fix the Fells. Cash only please.

Please note:  All participants in the walks do so at their own risk.  Pre-booking is not available on these walks. Walks will be subject to weather conditions.  The walk’s leader’s decision on suitable weather conditions is final.

Archive Talks

The museum hosts a monthly online Archive Talk, usually held on the first Thursday of the month.  In these popular talks, presented by our Photo Archivist Dave Simpson, we delve into our vast archive of over 46 000 images, to explore the fascinating history of the R&ER and the many stories it has to tell.

Details of the talk subjects are publicised on our Facebook page @rermuseum.  To be on our mailing list to receive the monthly talk link, please register your interest at steam@ravenglass-railway.co.uk

Guest speakers are also welcome.  If you have a link to the R&ER or other narrow-gauge railways and think you could offer our audience an engaging, railway themed talk or presentation, please get in touch.

Talks are free of charge, but if you would like to show your appreciation, donations are welcome to the museum here.
