Eden Valley - Buckle Summary

Title - The Eden Valley - The Eden at Bolton near Appleby.
- Bolton, Appleby, Cumbria, England.
- Claude Henry Buckle RI., RSMA. (1905–1973).

- A wonderful oil painting showing the unspoilt Eden Valley just north of Appleby, where the minor road crosses the River Eden in Bolton village just out of sight of the A66. A couple are resting on the bridge and a man is fishing in the distance.
It was originally produced in 1959, but BR obviously liked it so much that they re-issued it after the line had closed in Jan 1962, as the "Travel in Comfort By Train" is an over-print, with the original wording underneath saying "Go By Train To Appleby West Or Appleby East Station"
