at Ullswater 'Steamers'
Posted 2nd May 2015
From this May, a new lakeside jetty will provide passengers with an extra stopping point on the beautiful shores of Ullswater .
Starting from Glenridding pier, passengers will sail in style to a new stop at Aira Green.
The new 46-metre long timber jetty is the first new stopping point on Ullswater for more than 50 years and a new boardwalk has been built at Aira Green to help passengers disembark.
The new pier is a joint project between the National Trust, which owns and manages the area around Aira Force, and Ullswater ‘Steamers’ creating a new stopping off point for the steamers, near to one of Ullswater’s most visited attractions, Aira Force, which receives 250,000 visitors a year.
