The Crows Nest

The Crows Nest

At the end of Lime Tongue in Whitehaven Harbour and Marina, connected by a bridge you can see the 40-metre tower called the Crows Nest. This structure has a viewing platform with great views back over the marina towards the town. The buildings on the Old Quay are the Watchtower (built in the 1730’s) and on its left, the Pier Master’s Watch House (built in 1764). Whitehaven, on the West coast of Cumbria, England was the last place in Britain to be attacked by American naval forces. On 23rd April 1778 during the American War of Independence, John Paul Jones arrived in Britain with the intention of setting the whole merchant fleet on fire. The alarm was raised, and he retreated forthwith. Another American link is that Mildred Warner Gale, the grandmother of the American president George Washington, was buried in the grounds of St Nicholas’ Church in Whitehaven, on 30th January 1701.
