Geocache Description:


The War Memorial in Moor Row is a very simple one. It records only the names of the local people who gave up their lives in World War 1. There are no dates or Ranks. A plaque, or tablet, leans at the foot of the memorial. It records the names of the men who gave their lives in World War 2. The village school has done some research into the names on the memorial, and their findings are now stored on the Local History Shelves at Whitehaven Record Office

Moor Row and Scalegill were small farming communities until the coming of the mines, and then the railways, in the 1850's. One mine was famous for having one shaft that extracted coal from one side, and iron ore from the other. The railways and mines are now long gone. Perhaps the major claim of the village nowadays is that it sits on both Wainwright's Coast to Coast walking route, and the Whitehaven to Sunderland coast to coast cycle route.
