Ravenglass is a small village at the coast of Cumbria, England, UK. It has about 300 inhabitants and is around since the 2nd century.
It started as a roman naval base back in the 2nd century called Glannaventa. But more than the ruins of a bathhouse didn't remain of the big fort. Ravenglass was an important point for supplies to the northwest of England. Hundreds of soldiers were stationed at the fort for nearly 300 years.
Today the small village is not much different from the 16th century, except maybe for it's tourist attraction, the 'Ravenglas and Eskdale Railway'.
Nearby is Muncaster with it's castle and the Drigg Dunes with it's rich animal and plant life.
