Why does it need to be Public Transport?
Glassonby is, and was, a small village.
Transport would be by horse, horse and cart, or walking.
Penrith is just 8.6 miles away ;D

The station at Lazonby is just 3km to the west and is on the main line from London to Glasgow opened in 1876. Wikipedia is here...

Thomas, Davies, Jones, Walters, Daniel in Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion. That should narrow it down a bit!

The problem with Lazonby & Kirkoswald station is that it's on the Settle-Carlisle railway, with no direct link to Penrith?

Travelling to Penrith would have meant a change at Carlisle?
