Item Description: Amberley Publishing. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Copeland, Alan W. Routledge, Using postcards from the twentieth century, Copeland: The Postcard Collection takes a look at the borough in earlier times. Copeland was established in the mid-1970s following the amalgamation of the Borough of Whitehaven, Ennerdale Rural District Council and Millom Rural District Council. It takes in most of England's Western Lake District and around 40 miles of wild and beautiful coastline along the Irish Sea. This spectacular area boasts England's highest mountain and its deepest lake. The borough also contains the country's largest nuclear establishment and the former industrial towns of Whitehaven, Cleator Moor, Egremont and Millom. In addition, several beautiful villages, castles, abbeys, a miniature steam railway, a Roman fort and Victorian seaside resorts all add to the glorious diversity of the borough. Whitehaven, the principal town of the borough, was formerly England's third most important port after London and Bristol. Author Alan Routledge takes us back in time, looking at the rich heritage Copeland holds for the coming generations of locals and visitors alike. Bookseller Inventory # B9781445645988

Item Description: Amberley Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 235 x 165 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Coal was the very bedrock on which the town of Whitehaven was built, the trade in coal with Dublin starting after the Dissolution of the Monasteries. Shipping ever increasing quantities of coal to Ireland brought another industry to the town - shipbuilding. In the seventeenth century, the Whitehaven Pottery began, local coal firing the kilns. Coal mining fathered several more local industries, including chemicals, iron ore smelting, glass bottle making, foundries, engineering and even the railways made use of phenomenal quantities of coal. The winning of coal was a costly business in terms of lives lost, with several disasters occurring in the Whitehaven Colliery. Women and young children were employed in the mines, working for twelve hours or more a day. Now, there are few physical traces left of the Whitehaven Colliery: some sites have become housing estates and others have been returned to grass. In this book, Alan W. Routledge looks at the history of the Whitehaven Colliery. Bookseller Inventory # AAJ9781445640037
