BEST BY A MILE

Lancashire Life - - PLACES TO VISIT -

The Prom­e­nade is blessed with a rail­way sta­tion where ser­vices from Lan­cashire con­tinue to drop off vis­i­tors and ex­pose them to the stun­ning views across More­cambe Bay.

The mile-long prom has many other at­trac­tions, in par­tic­u­lar the gar­dens main­tained by the Grange Civic Society.

By the sta­tion there is also a wa­ter garden, served by Pick­le­foot Spring, and home to a col­lec­tion of ex­otic ducks and geese, now re­stocked af­ter 44 birds, with a com­bined value of over £1,600, were stolen last July.

This year all eyes will be on the lido, and whether the coun­cil ducks the de­mands for the re­open­ing of the lido, or whether the scheme will fi­nally take flight.
