Rails, Trails and Steamy Tales: The history of the Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith Railway

Keswick Museum

Rails, Trails and Steamy Tales tells the story of the Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith Railway company, the line, and the people who worked and travelled on it.

The exhibition will feature plans, posters, and the wheelbarrow and spade used by Thomas Hoskins to cut the first sod of the line in 1862 – alongside more personal stories, such as the wedding of a couple who met working on the line.

This exhibition makes a perfect start or end point to a walk along the Lake District National Park’s Keswick-Threlkeld trail along the old line.

Rails, Trails and Steamy Tales is funded by the Museum’s successful bid to the Culture Recovery Fund’s second round and runs from 5 June – 14 November 2021.

Nurturing Nature: Physical and emotional convalescence in Keswick’s outdoor spaces

Keswick Museum

Nurturing Nature is an exhibition exploring the relationship people have with the outdoors in Keswick and the seven Derwent parishes.

During the pandemic, many of us have been relying on outdoor spaces as safe places to exercise, socialise, and simply appreciate nature. The exhibition uses objects from the Museum’s collection to tell stories of how others have used these same spaces throughout history. Pieces on display will include creative responses to the landscape, objects relating to Fitz Park, Blencathra Sanatorium, and the Keswick & District Footpaths Preservation Association, as well as photographs showing how locals engaged with the outdoors during recent lockdowns.
