Millom Ironworks Nature Reserve
After the Ironworks was closed down in 1968, nature thrived on the abandoned land and in 2002 the site was declared a Local Nature Reserve. Now almost one quarter of the UK's population of rare natterjack toads live on the Duddon Estuary, many making their home on the reserve.

Hodbarrow Lighthouse
Built in 1905 on the newly built sea wall for the Hodbarrow Mining Company. This lighthouse was abandoned in 1949 when trade declined at Duddon Port and the mine output dropped. Over the years, the lighthouse fell into a state of disrepair, but £20,000 of Heritage Lottery funding enabled the lighthouse to be repaired and relit in 2003.

Built to grind grain long before the mine was built, but it was used as mine offices when the mine opened. Even in those days it was said to be in a state of disrepair. The mineshaft, Towsey Hole was dug close to the windmill.
