Pow Beck Valley
Pow Beck Valley
There is talk that a plan was made to put a canal from St Bees to Whitehaven along this valley because Whitehaven harbour could be difficult to sail into when the winds were in an unhelpful direction. I wonder what would be different if they had built this ship canal.View is from High Walton.
