Industrial Heritage of the Whitehaven Coast Guided Walk

Brought to you by the National Trust for Heritage Open Day. Take in the views and learn about the particular history of the area on a guided walk along the Whitehaven Coast trail.

Ranger Chris Gomersall will guide you on a 2 hour walk along the coast where he will talk about the mining history of this area of the coast as well as the stories around the founding of Whitehaven.

Take a step back in time as you imagine what it would have been like when the town was a bustling port, busy with imports and exports travelling by sea. Of course, the high view over the sea with the flowering meadows we have been working to restore makes for a picture perfect day everyone can enjoy.
