Near Sawrey

Thursday, October 13, 2005

It was a glorious autumn day with plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures.
As planned we headed for Ulverston where we parked up and walked the length of Ulverston canal, the shortest, widest and deepest in the country. There is plans to redevelop the canal side with apartments, restaurants etc.
We had a sandwich at the Bay Horse which is situated a the the foot of the canal right on the shoreline of Morecambe bay.

This is the viaduct at the northern reaches of the bay with a train going across it on it's way to the west coast main line

After our lunch we headed back up the canal and into the supermarket for the weekly shop then home to unload.
The last guests arrived just after dark.
