Location:Whitehaven, United Kingdom
Photo Category: Harbour Overview Images
A second view of Whitehaven inner harbour, including the locked basin where coal was exported to Northern Ireland, usually on the Kelly boats, and phosphate rock, the raw material for washing powder, was brought in by the two Marchon vessels, and the barge Odin, to be stored in the 2 huge silos, after being transhipped about a mile offshore from Meyer and Klaveness self-unloading bulkers. Occasional imports of wood, chemicals and a few unmentionables exported from British Nuclear Fuels down the coast in the odd Fisher coaster made up the sum total of Whitehaven movements in the 70's. I understand the harbour is now closed to commercial shipping, supporting just a small fishing fleet and the usual yachtie fraternity.
