Artist's Description

Looking over Whitehaven Harbour and Marina from Bulwark Quay at the south end of the harbour.

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.
