Did you know… Our Whitehaven office was one of our first offices to open, opening in 1986 at 79 Lowther Street. Let’s have a look into some key facts about the area…
ONE: Key Industries
In the 18th and 19th century the tobacco and coal industries were highly significant to Whitehaven. Trading approximately 10% of England’s tobacco business, Whitehaven was a ‘haven’ for this industry.
Baker Mallett are delighted to announce that we have been appointed as the Supplier on the Sellafield Contractor Compliance Auditing Services Contract for Sellafield Ltd. It is great to work alongside fantastic teams on this nuclear site.
THREE: Beatrix Potter
Beatrix Potter was also known as being an award winning sheep farmer as well as the creator of Peter Rabbit. She gave over 4,000 acres of land to the National Trust following her passing.
FOUR: Top 5 highest peaks
The top five highest peaks in England are in Cumbria/ the Lake District. Scafell Pike which is 978m, Sca Fell which is 964m, Helvellyn which is 950m, Ill Crag which is 935m and Broad Crag which is 934m.
FIVE: World’s largest colouring pencil
