Workington

Workington

Wokington is a bustling town and port, but was originally a small town. As docks, shipyards and ironworks were established, the town extended its borders to include them.

It's built on coal and has been a central mining place for some time. The small town was developed by the Curwen family and have reaped huge amounts of money from the local natural coal resource.
