Description

Platform inside Windermere station, 1931. The signs inside the station point to motor cars which took passengers to Ambleside and Grasmere. Only towns on the edge of the Lake District had stations, due to the mountainous terrain so people had to finish their journey by road transport. The Lake District had been a very popular tourist destination since the 18th century and the coming of the railways meant many more people visited the area for holidays and day trips.
