Midland Hotel, Art Deco Architecture

Morecambe’s heyday was in the early part of the last century with investment being poured in during the 1930s, the lucky result being the Art Deco influence to the architecture. Look above the shopfronts as you walk around and you will see countless examples. If you’re a real fan, the art deco walks show you the examples you might otherwise miss right down to the art deco ‘public conveniences.’The Midland - Iconic Art Deco Hotel

Morecambe

Poulton is the original fishing village that existed long before the birth of Morecambe. Currently the focus of a regeneration campaign, it is a quaint place to wander around with dramatic murals based on a fishing theme that have been created in a project between local artists and the community.

Heysham

The epitome of an English village. Take a walk past the old smuggling cottages down to Half Moon Bay. St Patrick’s chapel stands on a rocky crag, overlooking the bay and dates from around 750AD. Next to it are 8 rock hewn graves dating from a similar period and an ancient burial ground in which 85 sets of bones were found. This whole area is now owned by the National Trust. Stop at a coffee shop or lunch in the 16th century pub.

Sunderland Point

A single-track road leads to what was once a busy 18th century port with ships docking from America and the West Indies. Just a hamlet now, it is best known for Sambo’s grave , a tribute to an African slave who died on arrival at Sunderland Point. It is now lovingly tended by locals and their children who bring flowers and painted stones.

Check the tides before you set out because the road is cut off twice a day www.ntslf.org/tides/tidepred?port=Heysham
