Cleator Moor at one time had several iron ore mines, with mining job opportunities in abundance. This brought in a huge influx of Irish workers and gave the town the nickname “Little Ireland.” Irish men were content to cross the Irish Sea and come to work in Cleator Moor in the mines, on the roads and anywhere that required manpower, which was of great benefit to the community as well as helping the Irish out of a world of poverty and misery back home, due to the huge potato famine.
Both the World Wars saw Britain lose thousands of men, and the effects of this on the country’s economy were vast. It took a fresh influx of immigrants from around Europe who came to join the settled Irish community to help build up the town of Cleator Moor, as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. Since those days there has been a steady decline of these industries, which has resulted in a high rate of unemployment. Cleaton Moor’s economy is now dependent on the nearby Sellafield complex, which provides jobs to around half the town’s people.
