Schools in Workington

Workington, a coastal town in Cumbria, England, developed around a medieval castle and is renowned for its industrial history. Once a hub for coal mining, steel production, and iron and steel manufacture, the town has diversified into other industries. Known for the historic steel industry, where the famous Henry Bessemer's steelmaking process was introduced, Workington's steel manufacturing ceased in 2006 but its port, the Prince of Wales Dock, remains a vital trade center. With a rich cultural heritage, the town boasts Belting Hall, an ancient manor house, and storied Roman, Saxon, and medieval past. Workington's strategic placement at the mouth of the River Derwent, surrounded by natural beauty and settings like Solway Firth and the Lake District, contribute to its charm. Despite flooding incidents, the town's rail and road connectivity have been upheld.
