About Millom

The town of Millom developed close to the banks of the estuary of the River Duddon. It nestles in the shadow of the Black Combe, beyond which lies the majestic scenery of the Lake District National Park. It is also close to the golden sands surrounding Haverigg Point.

In the 18th-century Millom was renowned as a centre for Iron-Ore with many mines working the area. Although the industry has long since vanished, its heritage is recalled in the local museum and by a recently unveiled commemorative statue at the centre of the town.

Parts of the old mines have now become valued nature reserves, particularly Hodbarrow where a massive lagoon has formed between two broken inner and outer sea walls, making it a natural habitat for wildlife. This is now an RSPB site, the other half of the old site has become a water-sport park.

The 20th-century writer and poet Norman Nicholson (1914-1987) lived in the town, his life and times are recalled by a permanent exhibition in the Millom Folk Museum. His life is also commemorated by a stained glass window in St.Georges Church.

Historic Holy Trinity Church stands within a grassed churchyard surrounded by the graves and tombs of past centuries, some of these are listed monuments in their own right including the sundial facing the South wall of the church. Another interesting stone can be seen close to the North door, this is believed to be the base of Millom's market cross probably dating back to when Henry II gave a charter to Sir John Huddleston in the 13th-century. The charter allowed a market to be held every Wednesday. Holy Trinity is a lovely Norman church built of red sandstone, it was heavily restored during the Victorian era.

Visitors to Millom will find much of interest amidst a diverse range of scenery. It is a warm and friendly place with nice shops and excellent facilities for holidaymakers.
