Maryport Roman Fort and Senhouse Museum 

Maryport Roman Fort was built concurrently with Hadrian’s Wall and formed part of an extension of that frontier which guarded the Cumbrian coast. During the Elizabethan period, many artefacts from the site were saved by the collector John Senhouse but, two hundred years later, the fort’s stone was used to build the town and port.
