Solicitor in Cleator Moor

The small town of Cleator Moor is found in the Cumberland county in England and it developed quickly over the course of the 19th century due to the industrial revolution and in particular the mining industry that drove growth and development. Cleator Moor was the location of various minerals that were highly valued during the industrial revolution such as limestone, high-grade iron ore and coal. Iron works in Cleator Moor and the nearby town of Workington required these minerals and it was brought in by railways from Cleator Moor and surrounding villages.

The early part of the 20th century signaled the decline of mining in the town as most of the accessible iron ore had been mined and it became too costly to mine. You can learn about the minerals that were mined in Cleator Moor and surrounding towns at the Natural History Museum in London. In addition, there are three sculptures that stand in the Market Square of the town that act as a memorial to the mining industry. These sculptures were made by a local, Conrad Atkinson, and the sculptures represent the Phoenix, the Hand and the Miner. The decline of the mining and iron industry in Cleator Moor hit the town hard and resulted in mass unemployment. Today, almost half the townspeople are employed at the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing site near Seascale.

The original rise of the mining industry in Cleator Moor brought an influx of Irish workers to the town and it was even nicknamed “Little Ireland” at one stage. With the original population of the town mostly identifying as Protestant this caused some occasional conflict between them and the Catholic residents in the town. The most severe conflicts occurred after the Irish Potato Famine and the rise of the Orange Order and in 1871, hundreds of miners from Cleator Moor entered the nearby town of Whitehaven and attacked the Anti-Popery campaigner, William Murphy. Also, in 1884 the Orange Order members of Cumberland marched through Cleator Moor to celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne which caused riots and the death of a local postal worker as they clashed with local Catholics. Revenge attacks were made on Orange Order members in Cleator Moor not soon after.
