The collection was started in 1570 by John Senhouse, Lord of the Manor of Ellenborough.In the eighteenth century Colonel Humphrey Senhouse employed a man to preserve and record any carved stonework brought to light during the wholesale removal of much of the Roman Fort to provide building stone for the new town of Maryport. The collection is now housed in the building known as the Battery (a Royal Naval Artillery Volunteer Drill Hall built in 1885 to train naval gunners. The observation tower (seen in the distance in the photograph) gives a view of the full extent of the site. LinkExternal link
