The Road to Whitehaven

Vik and I go over the top of the Wrynose and Hardknot passes that lead to Whitehaven. The last invasion of the British Mainland occurred in Whitehaven in 1778 when John Paul Jones, father of the American Navy, invaded the port


An other interesting fact is that Viks grandfather used to open the gates for the landed gentry in this area, before having to relocate the family to London docks when the mines shut down.

Rather than post the exact same that I posted on Victoria's blog, may I invite you to plug your blog on Cumbric.net via a link to the message on Victoria's blog..?:
