Description

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.
