We are located on the north west coast of England, near the historic city of Lancaster and within the beautiful surroundings of Morecambe Bay. Glasson Dock is a useful stopping-off point for yachts on their way from the South Coast to Scotland or vice versa. Within easy reach of the Isle of Man and Ireland, it makes an excellent base for exploring the beautiful countryside of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. The Basin, which forms the beginning of Lancaster Canal, is entered via a lock from the River Lune. It is in a rural setting but within easy reach of many pubs and restaurants

To Bill re film reels dated 2/5/2017
hi bill.
Did anyone ever get back to you re the film reels? I lived at Glasson Dock on the River Lune and hope to return there in 2019.
I am sure that there are several people who would be interested in seeing the film.
There is a village newsletter each month. I will contact the guy who produces it - Dave Stainton and ask him to read your email on Harbour Guides.
But you can get back to me and I will fwd yr email to him. Thank you for your information. Elaine

A lot of years ago (36 or so) I was on a market In Colne Lancashire and a gent called Graham from the Filed coast Lithham I think used to have a junk stall selling stuff that was left over from house clearances ect, I bought an 8mm projector from him to show my kids on, some 8mm film that I took when they were small. They were some reels of film with the projector, taken buy an amateur film maker, a very good one ,going off the quality of his speech and pronouncement,. Some were of Wales with steam trains and mountains ,One of the river Wire, and best of all one of the Loon! and Glasson Dock that must have been taken when the port was still a going concern, showing coasters going up and down the river Loon and Glasson Dock and the area .I was in Glasson the other day and spoke to a gent having a cofee at the cafe a local guy, who when I mentioned the film he asked me if I would make a cd of it ,and that he would buy one. The next local that I spoke to said the same. So I thought of bringing the film over to glasson, with the projector, and showing it in the village hall for all to see for free, any donations can go to children with cancer Great Ormand street London.So If anyone is interested and can set up somewhere to show the film, let me know. By the way I am not a stranger to Glasson. 62 years ago me and a dozen other pupils from our school In Colne, came to Glasson on our bikes with our teacher and tents to camp and help out on a farm there, haymaking ect for a week or more (Old Glasson farm) I use to wait for the coasters coming in and ask the skipper to carry his luggage to the pub and got half a crown! a lot of money then for a kid. The Carabue I think they called the pub.- Regards Bill Hobson artist, of Foulridge, formally Colne Lancashire

For all you Beer Buffs out there, there is a new shop in Lancaster that has over 200 bottles ranging from regular prices to extreme for the collectors.
Hidden away down Sun Street is worth a visit.

I was also in The Gatehouse recently, and was equally impressed with the new menu and owners.

Had a delightful meal at the gate house, lancaster. As a vegetarian, it was a welcome change to be catered for so thoughtfully. Will recommend to my friends

The Mill is only a 10 minute walk from Glasson Dock and the food was great, as we had the pleasure of finding out last night.

Recently visited Glasson Dock, which was very interesting. It would have been good to know something about the historic craft moored there eg. Catherine D.
Can anyone provide further information?

the sea is blue in all children's novels, in reality it can be brown, green, blue and black.

Had a business lunch at the Borough in Lancaster yesterday,excellent and very reasonable.May come back for our works do.

The Dalton is now shut unfortunately but the "Vic" is still open for business.
A short walk down the canal towpath to the Mill for a pint and an excellent meal is well worth the effort.PS the sea round here is brown!

i was going to pay you a visit monday (2nd may)but your forecast has it down to snow give it a miss.

Thanks Elaine,we certainly will include that information when we update the area.

When you update your info, pleae could you consider including the the area is popular with bird watchers, cyclists, horse-riders and walkers. The old railway line into Lancaster opens up opportunities for car-free access along the banks of the River Lune into the historic City of lancaster and up the Lune Valley and directly to sea at Morecambe Bay with it's beautiful views across to the lakeland fells.
(Good website - thankyou.

Optimum Marine Surveys by John Heale
I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale

Glasson Dock Village Store by Terrance
I went to the village shop today with my partner and two young children. The shop was small but had plenty of amenities. I was surprised to see they also had a very small compact cafe for customers to take away bacon buns etc. we were considering our order whilst looking at the menu. During that time the 'chef' was waving his hands around an saying "well"? He was very impatient and once we ordered became increasingly agitated. He was rude throughout the process of making the food, verbally aggressive with other customers, saying he wanted to 'punch someone'. We felt inclined to stay and wait for the food so he wouldn't explode. The guy needs to take a chill pill or at least find a new job as flipping a few slices of bacon on a grill seems to be a much for him.
