Thankfully, the old trackbed was turned into a footpath, re-using the old series of bridges and most of the tunnels. This not only made a lovely level path direct into the middle of Keswick, but it has also been incorporated into the Coast-to-Coast (C2C) cycle route across England.

Plans are in place to repair the damage and to rebuild the bridges, and we hope that the path will soon be back in use.
Thankfully parts of the path are still open:
