Market-days, Tuesday and Friday. Maryport was called Ellenport until 1750, when the harbour was constructed; a new dock of 10 ac. was opened in 1884, and Maryport is now the largest port between the Mersey and the Clyde, with the exception of Barrow-in-Furness. (For shipping statistics, see Appendix.) Shipbuilding is carried on to a small extent, and the other industries include sailcloth works, iron-foundries, flour mills, saw mills, tanning, and brewing. The herring fishery is prosecuted, and in the neighbourhood are collieries and iron-furnaces.
