Sunset Series: Crossing the Sands

Discover the extraordinary history of crossing the sands of Morecambe Bay with historian Dr Bill Shannon

Until the coming of the railways, the main way from Lancaster to Ulverston, Millom and beyond, was across the sands of the Bay at low tide, accompanied by a guide. Prior to the Reformation, these men were employed by the monasteries as an act of charity: but afterwards the Duchy of Lancaster took on the role. However, even before the coming of the monasteries, back to the Romans and earlier, people were using the Bay as their highway.

Follow in their footsteps with local historian, Dr Bill Shannon, as your guide.
