Daytrips-Glasson Dock.

Glasson dock is a little village up near Lancaster. I like it, it is quiet and has a nice shop that sells blue ice pops. Visit Lancashire says;

'The village of Glasson has a small selection of shops and places to eat and there are excellent walks in the surrounding countryside and along the coast of Morecambe Bay. The village is linked to Lancaster by the Lune Estuary Cycleway, features an attractive and interesting environment with walks right round the harbour and a large public car park.

The harbour at Glasson originally opened in 1787, following the demise of Lancaster as a port, and was at its height the largest port in the north west, importing cotton, sugar, spices and slaves from Africa and the Indies. Lancaster Canal was important in affording swift distribution of cargo landed at the port into the heart of industrial Lancashire. Glasson is still a thriving port handling over 150,000 tonnes of cargo annually.'

Interesting stuff. I shall take you on a little walk to see things. 

The Victoria Pub, I have never visited the insides but I do remember once seeing a very large Embassy No.1 ashtray in the window and I was very pleased about this. Closed Pubs say that it shut for good in 2015. The day of my trip there was quite a lot of activity going on inside. Flats maybe?

Christ Church is a right little gem and Grade II listed. I wasn't to be in town when the grand book sale was happening but I always like to have a nose at the pamphlet selection.

I then went to The Port of Lancaster Smokehouse and purchased two kippers and some mint cake. You can visit them HERE. Go HERE to see a walk that you can do around the estuary from Glasson Dock and back.
