In this Georgian planned town there are many opportunities to snap something unusual or unique (a term I am using in its original sense of one of a kind). These photos are of things which caught my eye recently.
Being a former coal-mining town Whitehaven has many reminders of this aspect of its past. These photos include part of a mosaic memorial to those lost in a disaster. The Victorian drinking fountain is being approached by a more recent statue of a man and his whippet, a breed of dog popular with miners.
The blue plaque commemorates John Bragg (1723-1795) shoemaker and diarist.
The names of the piers or tongues reflect the cargoes, which passed through the port of Whitehaven.
