Grange over Sands

Grange over Sands

Grange or 'Graunge' is a French word meaning granary and the monks of nearby Cartmel Priory stored their grain here until Henry VIII dissolved England's monasteries in 1536. Like Ulverston, Grange was only accessible by crossing the sands from Lancaster by coach or on foot. Virtually untouched by Britain's industrial revolution the local fishing community remained quietly alone until the railway came in 1857.

Cartmel Trail Race & Challenge

The 18km Cartmel Trail Race, 18km Cartmel Trail Challenge and 10km Sticky Toffee Trail Run take you on off road journeys through some of the most scenic and varied countryside in the Lake District - along a Beauty and Beast of a course. The courses are mainly along waymarked & marshalled footpaths and bridleways, giving panoramic views of both Morecambe Bay and the surrounding peaks. Underfoot conditions are variable with a bit of everything. Good fast sections, but it can be very sticky in places, especially if wet.
