The Esplanade at Grange-over-Sands
The Esplanade at Grange-over-Sands
Grange-over-Sands is a small Cumbrian seaside town lying on the north side of Morecambe Bay. Originally a small fishing village, Grange developed during the second half of the 19th Century with the arrival of the Lancaster & Ulverston Railway (later absorbed into the Furness Railway), when it became a popular seaside resort and much of this is evident in the Town's (mostly unspoiled) Victorian architecture, such as the houses shown here on the Esplanade (I believe they date from the early 1880s).
