About Grange-over-Sands

A year round mild climate was the magnet that caused many rich industrialists from Lancashire and Yorkshire to build homes in what was, until the birth of the railways, little more than a delightful Hamlet and fishing village on the southern tip of the Cartmel peninsula. There are many beautiful buildings from the Victorian and Edwardian era and to this day Grange-over-Sands exhudes a flavour of these two great periods.

The town is backed by beautiful woodland and overlooks the vast expanse of Morecombe Bay. The promenade encircling the shore, borders with lovely gardens, ablaze with rare and exquisite flowers, trees and plants. The town shows several fine parks and gardens with lakes, inhabited by waterbirds.

Overlooking the town is the lofty Limestone clock tower of the parish church of St.Paul. This handsome church dates from Victorian times and has many interesting features. The attractive Victorian railway station is well preserved and is a triumph of railway architecture.

Cartmel Priory, to the east of the town, was founded as a 12th-century Augustinian Priory and escaped destruction at the time of the Dissolution. Apart from the church, which shows magnificent stained glass, all that remains of the original building, is the gatehouse. At nearby Lindale-in-Cartmel, an Iron monument commemorates 18th-century ironmaster John Wilkinson, who grew up in these parts and later moved to Ironbridge in Shropshire, where he cast the pieces for the first iron bridge.

This delightful town, steeped in ancient history and blessed with beautiful buildings, makes an interesting and ideal base from which to explore the glorious countryside of the Lake District National Park.
