About MaryportThis small harbour on the Cumbrian coast boasts 2000 years of history. When the Romans came to what is now Maryport they named it Alauna, and used the harbour for supplying the large fort above the town, the outline of which remains.
Once a major port (in the 17th and 18th Centuries) the harbour now houses a collection of steamships and old tugs.
In recent years, the harbour has developed a substantial marina in the historic Senhouse Dock, with pontoons for more than 170 yachts.
