Information
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 elainefinne2@gmail.com 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.

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 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!

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.

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.

Relax and enjoy the light and bright surroundings of The Grill on the Bridge. The high ceilings and fantastic period features make for a stunning backdrop, and our friendly team are on hand to serve you all-day from early til late.
Chef Andrew Nixon and his team prepare all our dishes in house and work on a philosophy that starts with really great quality raw ingredients (sourced locally where we can) and then simply prepared with care and skill. Our pizzas are already making a name for themselves in Lancaster ( how do they get the base so light and crispy?) and the 28-day aged steaks are just the best for taste and flavour. Dont forget to leave room for one of our delicious puds there are some traditional favourites that we think youll find hard to resist.
On the drinks front weve lots of choice too, and being owned by a local brewery, means that were able to serve some of the finest Thwaites cask ales, in peak condition. Our wine list is pretty special too, with over 12 wines by the glass and some great value bottles on offer.
Supporting our city and local business is important to us and so were proud to serve Atkinsons coffee skillfully roasted and blended for us no less than 1/2 mile from our door. Of course, theres also a great tea selection and our hot chocolate is a year round favourite not just for the chilly days.

Oh- and did we say we serve breakfast too!
