The Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway runs from Haverthwaite at the southern end of the line via Newby Bridge to Lakeside at the southern end of Windermere. It is a former branch line of the Furness Railway and was opened on 1 June 1869. British Railways closed the line to passengers on 6 September 1965, and to all traffic two years later. In the late 1960s efforts by enthusiasts to reinstate the line were frustrated by both an unsympathetic British Railways and the local planning authority who wanted to turn the route into a footpath. The line was eventually re-opened on 2nd May 1973, but no longer connects to the main-line railway system. At Lakeside, however it does still connect to the ferries on Windermere to Bowness and Ambleside.
