Grange-over-Sands Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Cumbria and The Lake District...

A genteel, Victorian-style seaside resort on the north side of Morecambe Bay, it has a mile-long promenade, which curves around the shore, fringed by gardens. It was the northern end of a route across the sands of the Bay until the advent of the railways.
Cartmel Priory is one of few English monastic churches to have survived the Reformation.

It has carved choir stalls, a 15th century stained glass window and a tall belfry.

At Lindale-in-Cartmel, two miles north, stands an iron monument to John Wilkinson who spent his youth here and built the world’s first bridge made from iron in Shropshire.
