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.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

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.
