Whitehaven Marina to close sea lock for maintenance.
Annual sea lock closure for maintenance at Whitehaven Marina will take place between 22nd February and 7th March 2016. The sea lock and associated breakwaters help protect not only the marina, but also the town itself from the severity of the Irish Sea winter storms. Hydraulics, electrics, seals and anodes will be inspected and overhauled by marina staff and specialist contractors at a cost of £35,000.

Great day dinghy sailing at Nichol End Marine. Non of us had any experience but we all picked it up quickly thanks to the tuition.
We are going to keep it up, as we want to eventually charter a boat for a holiday.
Here's dreaming.

Just been to the marina here, and visited some of the businesses you have on this guide. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised, so many people give this place bad press, but i would like to put on record that Whitehaven is well worth a visit, and there are far worse places to moor your boat. In fact as far as value for money and services in general I would say it takes some beating.

I recently visited Whitehaven Harbour - all I can say is "Top Banana!" - it's an excellent place to drop by. Great pubs, shops and people.

Optimum Marine Surveys by John Heale
I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale

Haig Colliery Mining Museum
On the site of the former Haig Pit in Whitehaven, which closed in 1986, the winding engine house and headgear are being restored to their former glory and is now open as the Haig Colliery Mining Museum.
Coal mining dates back to the 13th Century when the monks from St Bees Abbey supervised the opening of coal mines at Arrowthwaite. This long history ended in March 1986, when Haig Pit, Cumbria's last deep coal mine, finally closed.
The winding house has been undergoing restoration since early in 1994 by a group of local volunteers. When the pit closed, many of the buildings were demolished, and the area landscaped to form the Haig Enterprise Park. Only the winding engine house and headgear remained. The building is being restored to its former glory, along with two unique Bever-Dorling steam winding engines.
It is hoped that a railway can be constructed using a steam locomotive to ferry tourists part of the way from The Beacon to the Museum. The museum has on loan a diesel Hunslet Locomotive from Threlkeld Mining Museum.

The Rum Story
The café, set beside the courtyard offers many perspectives. Inside the converted stables snug stalls cater for up to six persons at a time whilst the airy glass covered courtyard feels like being outside. We even have balcony tables, which is a wonderful place for people watching or for keeping an eye on the famous Rum Story kinetic clock.
However, a choice of seating would not be enough on its own. We are proud that our café's many loyal regulars return time after time for our home baking and tasty meals, or just for a cup of coffee in the friendly atmosphere.
