- Lakeside, Cumbria
Lakeside is a small settlement at the south end of Windermere,
England. Now in the English county of Cumbria, before county reorganisation of 1974it was in Lancashire, as part of the region known as Furness. It was established as a steamer pier for services along the lake when the Lakeside branch of the Furness Railwayreached it in 1869, meaning that steamer services no longer had to negotiate the River Leven to Newby Bridge. Also built at Lakeside was a hotel to serve the tourists brought by the railway and steamers.
The steamers still call at Lakeside and the railway is now a steam-hauled
heritage railway, operated as the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway. However, it now only operates as far as Haverthwaite, with the route beyond to Ulverstonclosed as part of the Beeching cuts.
It now contains the
Aquarium of the Lakes, an aquariumfeaturing fish found in the rivers and seas around the Lake District.
