Haverigg

Haverigg village center by Graeme DougalThe name Haverigg means the hill where oats are grown. Surrounded by sand dunes and a nature reserve, the meaning of village name seems incongruous. The reserve is an important bird habitat that was once an iron mining site.

An RAF museum is located at the Bankside estate. It houses bits and pieces of old planes and has a large photo archive. It also displays the history of RAF Walney #10 Air Gunnery school.Haverigg Rising Sun pub by Graeme Dougal

From the village on the Duddon estuary, there are views across to the Irish sea.
