A walk around Ulverston

by Shaun Taylor December. 18, 2019 74 views

Ulverston is one of those town on the edge of the Lake District that many people miss whilst visiting its more famous neighbours

Ulverston is most famous for being the birthplace of Stan Laurel. In the town centre there is a Laurel and Hardy museum and a statue to the pair paid for by their fan club the Sons of the desert. The pair visited the town in 1947

The town has a small canal that make for a lovely walk on an evening. The canal is 1.25 miles long and construction started in 1793

The attraction that grabs your attention as you come into the town is the Hoad Monument which was built to commemorate Sir John Hoad who was born in the town

The tower is a hundred feet tall and resembles a lighthouse but never had a light

On the outskirts of the town is a railway viaduct which crosses Morecambe Bay
