On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Glasson Dock to Morecambe

The path to Morecambe also follows an old railway line and shares space with national cycle route 6. Again it is suitable for for both wheelchairs and pushchairs.. Overlooking the river Lune, and the fabulous Georgian architecture of St. George’s Quay sits Lancaster Maritime Museum. The Museum is housed in the Port of Lancaster Custom House and warehouse buildings which date from the second half of the 18th century. The buildings along the quayside developed around this time as a result of the success of overseas trade. Alongside the Museum are buildings, which belonged to prosperous Quaker slave trader Dodshon Foster. The museum is open every day, from 11 to 5 in the summer months.The art deco Midland Hotel, right on the front at Morecambe, has been painstakingly restored by Urban Splash and afternoon tea here would provide a fitting end to this section of the walk. Just along the front is the statue to one of Morecambe’s most famous sons, Eric Morecambe.
