Sue Hayman is the local MP for the constituency of the same name that includes other towns in the hinterland of Workington.HistoryThe area around Workington has long been a producer of coal, steel and high grade iron ore.Between 79AD and 122AD, Roman forts, mile-forts and watchtowers were established along the Cumbrian coast. They were coastal defences against attacks by the Scoti from Ireland and by the Caledonii, the most powerful tribe in what is now Scotland. The 16th-century Britannia, written by William Camden describes ruins of the coastal defences at Workington.
