Help with the cost of setting up this website came from the Solway Coast AONB (see below) with a grant from their Sustainable Development Fund; from Iggesund Paperboard at Workington; and from Carrs Fertilisers and CalTech, subsidiaries of Carrs Milling Industries: I am extremely grateful to all these organisations for their encouragement and support.

The Solway Coast AONB works to protect and enhance the special qualities of the distinctive landscape of the Solway Coast. Visit for up-to-date information about the AONB's work, Sustainable Development Grant, events, local businesses, walks and volunteering opportunities.
