Haverigg


Haverigg is a coastal village in the Copeland district of Cumbria, located about 1 mile south-west of Millom. Haverigg Pool, a small river, flows through Haverigg and joins the estuary of the River Duddon here. Haverigg was a small fishing village, which grew rapidly after Hodbarrow Iron Ore Mine was established nearby in 1850. A legacy of the mine, which closed in 1968, is the large Hodbarrow Outer Barrier (sea wall) which now froms a lagoon and RSPB nature reserve. In the village are St Luke's Church, built in 1891, and Haverigg Primary School. Haverigg is served by Millom Town Council. Steel Green and Port Haverigg Holiday Village are a short distance along the shore from Haverigg.

Haverigg is a village on the south-west coast of Cumbria, England, historically part of the county of Cumberland. In 2001 it had a population of 1,791 in 548 households, increasing in 2011 to a population of 1,849 in 549 Households.

The name Haverigg derives from the Old Norse and can be translated as "the hill where oats are grown".

Haverigg is at the mouth of the Duddon Estuary, a protected area important for birds and other wildlife. Haverigg has an extensive, quiet Blue Flag beach. There is also access to a seawall with a lighthouse which protects Hodbarrow Lagoon, part of Hodbarrow RSPB Reserve.

Haverigg is to the south of Whitehaven, to the north of Barrow-in-Furness (by road via the estuary) and to the west of Millom.

An independent lifeboat station, Haverigg Inshore Rescue Team, has been based in the village since 1973 assisting those in difficulty around the Duddon coastline.
