Visit Eden from the Settle-Carlisle line

New Eden Heritage Trails are now available.

Four new trails covering most of Eden have been launched highlighting the rich and diverse heritage of the area in an easy to use, colourful style. Each guide brings history to life, guiding the visitor on a journey of discovery to Eden’s historical castles, houses, churches and buildings.

Visitors will be able to obtain the guides from Tourist Information across Eden including Alston, Appleby in Westmorland, Kirkby Stephen and Penrith. The free leaflets are accompanied by a heritage trail app and display boards at Alston, Appleby, Kirkby Stephen and Penrith information centres.

A brand new app will also enable you to explore Eden’s main heritage sites at leisure via smart phones and tablets. Users of the app will be able to see what sites they are nearest too along with getting travel directions and information on what facilities are available at each site.

Copies of the leaflets and app are available to download from the Eden Heritage Trails website here.

We would love to see your pictures of the day, which can be sent to us at or via our Facebook page (@setcarrailway).
