  • Whitehaven is a Georgian planned town (one of Britain's first planned towns, with a grid iron pattern of streets). It boasts almost as many links with America as it does with the rest of England. Rich coal reserves were mined and transported to Ireland. This coal trade led in turn to ship building and a direct involvement in trade with the newly founded Colonies in what was to become the USA. The port also had to defend itself and its ships against raiders and had its own small fort.
    Three of the leading figures in the American War of Independence had connections with Whitehaven. These were George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and John Paul Jones. To learn more see our site Whitehaven's American Connectionswhitehaven sailing ship
