Workington Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Cumbria and The Lake District...

This industrial town has a few surprises in store. It contains a number of magnificent Georgian buildings as well as the 14th century Workington Hall, now a virtual ruin, where Mary Queen of Scots stayed in 1568. The town owes its prosperity to coal and supplied fuel to steel-makers, taking it from seams beneath the ocean.
