Code LF-13 The Hoad Monument
The Hoad Monument. Ulverston's defining symbol, the replica lighthouse is a monument to arctic explorer Sir John Barrow. It stands above the town on Hoad Hill, with Morecambe Bay in the background.
Code LF-14 Canal Lock Gates (1)
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.
Code LF-15 Canal Lock Gates (2)
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.
Code LF-16 The Upland Pond
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.

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.
