A Cumbrian railway will take centre stage on primetime TV when presenters Matt Baker and Anita Rani head to the Western Lake District for this weekend’s episode of Countryfile.

Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway will feature in the programme being screened this Sunday.

Stuart Ross, general manager (visitor experience), Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, said: "What a pleasure to welcome Countryfile to the railway. It was a fantastic opportunity not only to showcase some of our unique heritage engines, but also to inspire people about a car-free alternative to exploring some of the country’s most epic countryside. We’re all looking forward to tuning in on Sunday night!”

The episode will also feature an exploration of the Western’s Lake District’s epic landscape, including interviews with a local farmer and a group of wild swimmers.
