Cumbria Reports

Grange over Sands, Cumbria

Review of Grange over Sands by Nick on October 18th, 2007
The advent of the Furness Railway transformed the small fishing village of Grange-over-Sands into the fashionable Victorian/Edwardian resort, with wealthy merchants building grand houses, which now accommodate top quality hotels.

Marvellous limestone buildings dominate this picturesque seaside town.

Grange has much to offer the visitor. A traffic-free promenade, ornamental gardens, a duck pond, golf courses, brass band concerts and vantage points for bird watching are just some of the many attractions on offer. Population 4,000

Brit Quote:
Somebody said to me, 'But the Beatles were anti-materialistic.' That's a huge myth. John and I literally used to sit down and say, 'Now, let's write a swimming pool.' - Paul McCartney
