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.

'The Scutcher’ by Colin Telfer of Maryport
Colin Telfer joined an art course when he was made redundant after spending more than twenty years at the coal pits and Workington Steelworks!!
The statue is made from a mixture of resin and iron ore dust from the Florence Mine at Egremont. A scutcher was a tough man who had to stop the heavy iron ore tubs by thrusting a metal bar through the wheels.

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.

Millom Castle
A Grade 1 listed buiding built in the early 12th century. The castle is believed to have suffered significant damage from attacking Lancastrian forces in the mid 15th century and again in 1644 during the Civil War when it was captured by Cromwell's troops because the owners, the Huddlestons were Royalists. The castle has been a ruin since 1739. It is not open to the public and is part of a working farm.

Hodbarrow Lagoon, Millom
Originally the site of the Hodbarrow Iron Mines. The first shaft was sunk in the 1850s to extract the iron rich haematite from the ground. Mining ceased in 1968 and mines were flooded, thus creating the Hodbarrow Lagoon, the largest coastal lagoon in the northwest of England and now an RSPB Nature Reserve.

Swinside Stone Circle and Lath Rigg
One of the finest stone circles in Britain. Situated on Swinside Fell, this Bronze Age circle consists of 55 stones up to 3 metres high, and has a diameter of 27.5 metres. Its entrance appears to  line up with the winter sunset. The circle's other name, Sunken Kirk, came from a legend that the devil kept pulling down a church that people were trying to build.
