WORKINGTON, a sea-port of Cumberland, situated on the south bank of the Derwent, has a good harbour, and an extensive trade in coal, from the valuable collieries of Henry Curwen, Esq., and several other collieries, many of which are at a considerable distance. On the east side of the town is Workington Hall, the manor-house of the ancient family of Curwen, finely situated on an elevated position above the river. It is remarkable as having afforded an asylum to the unfortunate and persecuted Mary Queen of Scots, when she landed at Workington. Population, 6415; market-day, Wednesday; inns, Green Dragon, New Crown, and King's Arms.
