Aspatria is a small town in the north west of Cumbria, between Maryport and Wigton. There has been a settlement here for over 3000 years, and it lies on the route of a busy Roman road.
The town is best known for its church of St Kentigern. An avenue of yew trees leads to the site where a Norman church once stood. It was demolished to build the larger stone St Kentigern, in 1846-48 in the Early English style.
The first creamery acquired by the Milk Marketing Board in 1934, Aspatria is Dairy Crest’s most northerly manufacturing site producing up to 80 tonnes of cheese per day, including mild, medium and mature cheddar, as well as Double Gloucester.
Although mining and quarrying were important industries to Aspatria, the surrounding countryside remained pastoral with many farms engaged in the business of producing milk. Selective cattle breeding produced higher yields of milk per cow, allowing the surplus to be turned into butter and cheese. In 1888, a group of dairy farmers formed the West Cumberland Dairy Company and built a creamery on land near the railway station. Milk could now be sent to Carlisle, Newcastle and London by rail tankers. On nationalisation of the milk industry in 1934, the creamery at Aspatria was the first to be taken over by the newly created Milk Marketing Board, which invested in creating one of the most modern cheese-making factories of its time. Today, the creamery is owned by First Milk – a dairy farmers’ cooperative – with over 170 dairy farms in the surrounding district supplying the creamery with milk.
Aspatria’s location on the old Roman road to Carlisle helped secure its destiny as a market town. Goods such as wool, flax, salt, charcoal, honey, grain and meats were regularly carried through the town on packhorses, and livestock driven through on the way to markets in Wigton, Carlisle, Cockermouth and Egremont.
Coal was mined from the mid-17th century, initially using drift mines. The first pit was sunk at Oughterside in 1681, and thereafter the area became honeycombed with pit workings. The coal was hand-cut at the face using pickaxes and brought out by pit ponies.
The arrival of the Maryport to Carlisle railway in 1845 increased production of coal, which could now be taken easily to Maryport docks for export to Ireland and to the iron and steel works of Workington. The railway was also instrumental in transporting farm produce from the area to markets in Carlisle and Newcastle. The station at Aspatria became a nucleus for further development as warehouses, a goods yard and cattle mart suddenly sprang up to accommodate new trade. During these boom years, many rows of 19th-century terraced housing were added onto the town.
As Aspatria was developing as a mining town, Allonby was evolving from fishing village to fashionable sea-bathing resort. Fine Georgian houses were built for those who wanted to benefit from the sea air, briny waters and fine views over the Solway, later followed by the grand Victorian Baths in 1835 that provided a suite of heated saltwater pools for bathin.
