The Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway is a heritage railway located in the scenic Leven Valley at the southern end of Windermere.
The new website is a bespoke WordPress Content Managed site. It’s built using Responsive Web Design so it resizes according to screen size. The number of visits to the site from mobile devices is increasing so the client wanted to offer a user-friendly site for all types of screen.
The design reflects the station building and the heritage of the railway line. Old pieces of signage are used for the navigation, the cream and black brick work provides a background and the station clock displays the train services.
The layout uses two side columns. General information is featured in the left-hand column and specific ‘View tickets’, ‘View timetable’ and ‘What’s on’ are in the right-hand column. This enables users to find the relevant information in a specific area on the page.
