Maryport has always had a close affinity with the sea, from its earliest fishing days to the busy docks and sea-faring ships of the Georgian and Victorian eras.
Even the Romans utilised the presence of the sea and its shoreline as added defence in the building of Hadrian's Wall, their great frontier sweeping along the Solway Firth and down the west coast as far as Ravenglass.
The west-facing Solway coast affords expansive views and glorious sunsets over the Irish Sea, which can be enjoyed from the promenade walks.
