CHARLES STREET BUILDINGS GROUP Portfolio
Blencathra House, Whitehaven

Blencathra House is occupied by Cumbria County Council. It is situated in a prominent position on the waterfront overlooking the north harbour. The property comprises a modern three-storey office building with solid external appearance of brick cladding and local red St. Bees sandstone. Whitehaven is a Georgian planned town, one of Britain’s first, with a grid iron pattern of streets. It has almost as many links with America as it does with the rest of England. Rich coal reserves were mined and transported to Ireland, with this trade in turn leading to ship-building and a direct involvement in trade with the newly founded Colonies in what was to become the USA.
