Maryport is a town and civil parish within the Allerdale borough of Cumbria, England. Historically in Cumberland, it is located on the A596 road six miles north of Workington, and is the southernmost town on the Solway Firth. The town of Silloth lies twelve miles to the north, along the B5300 coast road, which passes through the villages of Allonby, Mawbray, Beckfoot, and Blitterlees. The county town of Carlisle lies 28 miles to the north-east. Maryport railway station is on the Cumbrian Coast Line. The town is in the parliamentary constituency of Workington. Maryport lies at the northern end of the former Cumberland Coalfield.HistoryRoman and medieval timesThe town was first established in around AD 122 as one of several Roman localities called Alauna. It was a command and supply base for the coastal defences of Hadrian's Wall at its western extremity. There are substantial remains of the Roman fort, which was the last in a series of forts stretching southwards along the coast from Hadrian's Wall, aimed at preventing the wall being avoided by a crossing of the Solway Firth. Recent geomagnetic surveys have revealed a large Roman town surrounding the fort. A recent archaeological dig discovered evidence of a second, earlier and larger fort next to, and partially under the present remains. After the Roman withdrawal from Britain the town was soon reduced in size and importance.
