English: Egremont is a market town in the county of Cumbria, England, on the A595 road south of Whitehaven and on the River Ehen. The town, at the foot of Uldale Valley and Dent Fell, was historically in the county of Cumberland and has a long industrial heritage including dying, weaving and iron ore mining. The town's layout today is much the same as was envisaged by Richard de Lucy c.1200 with its wide Main Street opening out into the Market Place. The remains of the Norman castle, built in the 12th century, are situated at the southern end of Main Street near the Market Place. Egremont was granted a Charter for a market and annual fair by King Henry III in 1266. The resulting annual Crab Fair now hosts the World Gurning Championships.
