Whitehaven Harbour

The Whitehaven Harbour Commissioners have been awarded funding towards a scheme to improve the facilities for the fishing industry in Whitehaven harbour. These developments will benefit both resident and visiting fishermen and includes new ramped access to the harbour wall, CCTV security, power and water to the visitors berths, laundry facilities for visiting crews, improvements to the existing ice plant, new cold storage facilities and safer vehicle access to the working quay.

This project was financed by a voluntary donation from the Walney Extension offshore wind farm. Photography by Scott Kershaw (www.scottkershaw.co.uk).
