Morecambe Bay - Our Heritage - Parts 1, 2 and 3 E

£30.00

Product description

Discover the heritage and beauty of the largest bay in the North West of England, by award-winning heritage film director Chris Abram.

Part 1: Fleetwood, Morecambe to Levens Hall (double DVD)
Using a combination of modern high definition filming, priceless heritage footage from individual donors and film archives, rare Victorian postcards and photography, plus stunning aerial photography of the whole bay area I tell of the heritage & beauty of:
Fleetwood to Glasson Dock, Sunderland Point, Morecambe, Hest Bank, Bolton-le-Sands, Carnforth, the coast & its famous birds to Jenny Brown's Point, Silverdale and Arnside. We are treated to a personal guided tour around Levens Hall, one of the finest Elizabethan houses in the North West of England, with the country's oldest topiary gardens, by its owners Hal & Susie Bagot.

Part 2: Grange over Sands, Crossing the Bay, Flookburgh & Shrimps and much more...
Following on from Part One, we start with the heritage of Grange over Sands. The story of the ancient, treacherous pathway across Morecambe Bay with Cedric Robinson MBE, historic fishing, cockling and shrimping town. Included is the award-winning film Chris made, Six Miles Into the Bay, of the day he went out with fisherman Michael Wilson. Jack Manning, fisherman and raconteur, relates his experiences. The huge Cumbria Steam fair is visited before we go to Cartmel, its Priory, Races and Holker Hall [near Cark]. Then it is up the beautiful and historic Cartmel Valley, with its Dolly Blue, Gunpowder and Ironworks to the superb Lakeland Motor Museum. The story of the Furness Railway follows and we journey to Lakeside on the Lakeside - Haverthwaite Railway, and end at the historic port of Greenodd.

Part 3: Ulverston, Laurel & Hardy, Chapel Island and more...
Following on from Parts 1 and 2, the film begins in the festive town of UIverston, the unveiling of the Laurel & Hardy Statue by Ken Dodd, the Furness Tradition & Dickensian Festivals, Sir John Barrow and the monument on Hoad Hill, Cumbria Crystal, Conishead Priory [now Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre], ancient Urswick and the coast to Rampside, Gleaston Water Mill, once the centre of iron-ore mining, Marton & Lindal and its candle making, Dalton-in-Furness and its castle. The magnificent Furness Abbey. We visit the South Lakes Wild Animal Park [now South Lakes Safari Zoo], before learning of the origins and development of Barrow-in-Furness. Then we visit Roa, Piel and Walney islands. Plus lots, lots more.
