Oxenholme

(See also Oxenholme Station)

Oxenholme station courtesy of TheButlerOxenholme was originally two miles from Kendal but is now a suburb of the town. The train station at Oxenholme is a gateway to the Lakes.

The railway line here was opened in 1846 and was electrified in 1974. At first, part of the Lancaster and Carlisle line, it then merged with the London and North Western Railway.

TransPennine Express plies the route from Oxenholme to Windermere.

The Oxenholme station, designed by architect William Tite (builder of the Bank of England and the Royal Exchange in Threadneedle St., London), has a connecting link with the train to Windermere.
