Beckermet Joins Gosforth in saying NO to going any further along with the government plan for geological disposal of high level nuclear wastes.
Beckermet is a village, civil parish and post town in the English county of Cumbria, located near the coast between Egremont and Seascale. Historically within Cumberland, it is served by Braystones railway station and is less than a mile west of the A595 road. It is near – around 2 miles/3 km from – the Sellafield nuclear plant which may be seen from the higher parts of the village.
Note that Beckermet includes half of the Sellafield site, and
Gosforth is the home of Longlands Farm (starred in the map).
