Carpentry and Joinery Askam

Askam is a small village situated between Barrow-In-Furness and Ulverston. Originally the town grew from the village of Ireleth, which was established as a farming village in Medieval times. The long, sandy beach in front of Askam village is situated on the northern coast of the Furness peninsula. The village was developed into a town when it was discovered that there were large iron ore deposits in the area in the 18th century. It is now mostly known for having a functioning brick factory.   

   Historically, Askam-in-Furness was known for its industrial mining. The discovery of significant iron ore deposits in 1850 became 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 stunning sand-dune nature reserves. If you travel south from Carlisle or west from Lancaster, Askam is easily accessible by rail; Northern Trains offers a scenic coastal journey to Askam-in-Furness.
