Samuel Sheldon Millom –
Building Contractors for Cumbria
Building contractors Askam
Askam is situated between Barrow and Ulverston. Originally the town grew from the village of Ireleth, which was established as a farming village in Medieval times. The village was developed into a town when it was discovered that there were large deposits of iron ore in the area in the 18th century. It is now most noted for having a functioning brick factory. Sitting on the eastern bank of the Irish sea, it has a population of 3,462 and is surrounded by fantastic views like Black Combe, another prominent feature on the Furness peninsular. Its view and situation next to the Duddon Estuary mean the area is teeming with wildlife and fauna and a great place to start when exploring the lake district and surrounding areas.
Askam-in-Furness was once famed as an industrial mining area. The discovery of significant iron ore deposits in 1850 turned out to be England’s second-largest iron ore deposit. Over 7 million tonnes were extracted! This brought hundreds of workers to the area from across Britain and put Askam on the map, with a railway station opening in 1851 and rows of terraced houses popping up to accommodate the influx of miners and their families. Askam has since relinquished its mining days and is perhaps now better known for its abundance of wildlife and beautiful sand-dune nature reserves. Askam is easily accessible by rail, whether travelling south from Carlisle or west from Lancaster; Northern Trains offers a scenic coastal journey to Askam-in-Furness. Plus, there are easy connections through Manchester and Preston. The town can be accessed by car via the A595.
