Uncover your history

The museum houses many documents and photographs giving details of a bygone age in the Millom area. We have an extensive display devoted to the Hodbarrow Iron mining industry, which includes maps and plans, as well as documents and photographs. Other industries are not forgotten - shipbuilding was an important occupation in the 19th/early 20th centuries; the blanket making industry centred on Hallthwaites is also featured. Maybe one of your ancestors came to Millom from Ireland, or Cornwall to work in the iron mines.

We have worked with people from all over the world to help them learn more about their own Millom area family history. If you are interested in using our services, please, do get in touch.
