Whitehaven Coal Agency

Whitehaven Coal Agency

Whitehaven is a town and port on the Cumbrian coast. Whitehaven grew into a major coal mining town during the 18th and 19th centuries and also became a substantial commercial port on the back of this trade. Whitehaven was a terminus of the Furness Railway and trains would bring loads of coal, iron and gypsum onto the quays for ships to transport elsewhere.
