Maryport was the site of a Roman port, built to complement the harbour at Ravenglass to the south. A nearby fort, dating from the 5th century, was one of a series of fortifications constructed by the Romans in this area. Many of the Roman remains are now in the Senhouse Roman Museum, once a Royal Naval Reserve Station. The modern town of Maryport was the creation of the Senhouse family in the 18th century, who developed the small fishing village into a coal port. Like Whitehaven, it was a planned town with terraces of cottages built on a grid system, with employment centering on coal mining and ship building. The history of the town can be explored at the Maritime Museum, the Senhouse Roman Museum, and in the harbour area. Join Keith Thompson on this visual journey through time which will surprise and delight anyone who knows and loves this area.
