The Devils Porridge Museum tells the story of the area during the war through a collection of engaging exhibits.

The ancient Saltpans at Crosscanonby are a testament to an earlier age, while the Roman fortification atop Swarthy Hill was built by Emperor Hadrian around 122 CE.
Beckfoot Burial Ground, which marks this part of the coast as a Quaker centre, dates to the 1640s. Maryport and the 1830 Wigton Meeting House are two other local examples of Quaker meeting places.
