Glasson

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 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.
