Summary of GBWHN

Whitehaven Harbour (Port Code:GBWHN) was once of more commercial importance than Liverpool or Bristol. It is located at UK Coast & Atlantic, Irish Sea in United Kingdom.The large harbour was developed during the 17th century, mainly in connection with the export of coal mined locally.
Nowadays the harbour consists of a large outer drying harbour, and then access is via a sealock to an equally large area of enclosed and totally sheltered water. 
The maximum size through the lock is 30 m, although when open for free flow much larger vessels can pass through. Large vessels are accommodated on the quayside, and pleasure craft up to 15 m can use the Marina pontoons.
