Parton Sea Wall

Parton Sea Wall
In the 19th Century Parton had a thriving harbour, tannery, colliery, iron works, brewery and even a locomotive engineering works, namely the Lowca Engineering Company who built the first locomotive for the Maryport & Carlisle Railway. The village today is a totally different picture, but the location is very nuch a 'back water' situated in an enviable location; well, it certainly seems like it on a summer's day like this!

Ooh-er! Nicely done, Gordon, does this working ever coincide with a high tide and sea in the bay?

Thank you Steve. Its just luck of the draw with the tide and a special working like this. I will most certainly give it another go one day for a high tide version, with a suitable working, but a pair of 20's in this formation is extremely rare.
