The Stone Jetty

Long, stone jetty offering a walking path, bay vistas & bird & animal sculpture. The present Stone Jetty is one side of the former Harbour, built around 1853. In 1861 a railway line was completed from the Jetty to Hest Bank, where it linked in with the Lancaster to Carlisle line. This line brought in coal and coke from Durham and North Yorkshire for the flourishing export trade to Ireland. When the Port of Heysham was built in 1904 trade declined rapidly in Morecambe and the Harbour was eventually used for breaking up ships, giving employment to hundreds of local people during the bad times of the 1920s and 1930s. The most famous casualty was the SS Majestic, a huge old White Star liner broken up in 1914.

The Stone Jetty was rebuilt and extended during 1994/95 as part of the coastal defence work to combine a series of circular pavement features incorporating pavement games which young and old can enjoy. There's a maze, a magpie hopscotch, a food chain, a wordsearch, a huge compass and a cafe. For further information contact Morecambe Tourist Information Centre on 01524 582808.
