The old Canal Lock Gates at Canal Foor, near Ulverston. The short 1 mile canal was opened in 1795, and the last ship left in 1946. The railways and the shifting channel in the estuary had finally overcome the waterway.

These are the most visible remains of the original equipment on the well-kept canal, the old timbers and rusting ironwork decaying away but imperceptibly.

Unframed mounted print: 10.99 (includes carriage)

Little more than a mile north-west of Ulverston, a height of 800 feet is soon reached, near Horace Cross, offering fine views over Osmotherley, Lowick Common and the Furness Fells.

Code LF-33 Market Place, Ulverston

Unframed mounted print: 10.99 (includes carriage)

A view familiar to any visitor to Ulverston over the last 200 years, the war memorial is of course a 20th century feature. Ulverston as a market place is much older, a market charter being granted in 1280, in the reign of Edward 1.
