Achieving the Gold standard Green at Heart Award for the first time Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway in the Western Lake District joins sister attraction in attaining this top tier environmental accreditation.

A raft of eco-friendly initiatives at the visitor attractions include working towards being plastic free, 25p off hot drinks with a refill mug at the cafes, installing timed LED night lighting for security and a biomass boiler at the Railway, electric car charging points at both locations, 30 trees planted in the North West last year, raising awareness of the natural environment through partnership activities with National Trust, Lake District National Park and donations to Lake District Foundation and promoting car free holidays. Newly appointed Environmental Champions at both attractions are leading on embedding green practices across the organisations and raising awareness across the staff and volunteer teams.
