This Georgian town, situated on the west coast of Cumbria, was one of the first post-renaissance planned towns in the country. Built on shipping and mining, both industries have now declined, but Whitehaven is never-the-less an attractive town and is one of the 40 Gem Towns in England.

Lakeland Spring Water

"A water spout will bring down half a mountain; what a feast"

This refreshing Lakeland spring water is collected high above beautiful Ennerdale, at Standing Stones.

The spring is situated 860 feet high in the North Western Lakes, and has probably effused ice - cold, crystal clear water since the last Ice age.
