Eskdale Green is a sizable village at the entrance to Eskdale, with a useful village shop and two stations on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway. From the road the village seems to be long and narrow, but it actually has some depth - the road is at the upper end of the village and there are some very substantial houses in the lower part of the village. Eskdale Green has a useful village shop with a walking equipment shop upstairs.
Directions: Eskdale Green can be reached from the east via Wyrnose and Hardknott Passes or from the west either from Gosforth or from Holmrook
