More conference outing photographs

Having taken the M/V Swan across Windermere, we then alighted to catch a steam train from Lakeside up to Haverthwaite.

Steam locomotive "Repulse" pulls in to lakeside railway station.

Alighting the train at Haverthwaite.


Note: there was a discussion about the "thwaite" part of the name Haverthwaite. Apparently it is, as we guessed, of norse origin. It comes from þveit meaning a clearing or open space of land.
