Entering Skinburness

  • Description

    "Little has changed in the 11 years since [[40359]] was taken, although the sign has been renewed. Skinburness owes its existence to the monks of Holm Cultram Abbey at Abbeytown who made the marsh and scrub land suitable for farming. The village became a significant port for the export of wool, fish, grain and salt. In more recent times it became a holiday centre although the derelict Skinburness Hotel (visible just behind the large white house) now gives the village a dilapidated air."
