taken 2 months ago, near to Coulderton, Cumbria, England

The Cumbrian Coast Line
The Cumbrian Coast Line
Opened as the Whitehaven & Furness Junction Railway in 1848 and becoming a part of the Furness Railway in 1866, this section of the Cumbrian Coast Line hugs the sea shore at the base of slumped and unstable cliffs of glacial till; it consequently requires frequent maintenance to avoid damage from landslip and erosion.
St. Bees Head is in the background.
