[Note 205.2] "From Ambleside. and Windermere by railroad they will run": - The Kendal and Windermere Railway Act authorising construction received the royal assent on 30 June 1845, and when the L&CR opened southwards from Oxenholme on 22 September 1846, the route to Kendal was already built. By 20 April 1847, the through route to Windermere station was complete. [Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kendal_and_Windermere_Railway.]. The poet William Wordsworth was prominent among those who objected to building the railway. See bar663~Reply to Wordsworth.
