Egremont is a small traditional market
town nestling at the foot of Uldale Valley and Dent Fell. The
town has a wide Main Street opening out into the Market Place,
overlooked by the remains of a Norman Castle. Egremont Castle
was built about 1130 and stands on a mound above the River Ehen,
with well-preserved ditches, walls and gatehouse. Dyeing and
weaving were traditional industries and iron ore mining and quarrying
were established in Egremont more than 800 years ago. About a
mile south of the town is Florence Mine, the last working iron
ore mine in Europe, and part of the rich mining history of West
Cumbria. Also see Egremont &
