Heysham Guide

The coastal village of Heysham is located in the Lancaster district and lies on the shores of Morecambe Bay, just a short distance from both Morecambe and Lancaster. The village has some lovely 17th century cottages and its colourful floral displays have won the Britain in Bloom's Gold Small Village on two occasions. The village was also a popular location for the celebrated British painter, JMW Turner, who painted the village along with its lakeland backdrop in the 1790's.

The site of the village has been inhabited in one way or another since the Stone Age and as a result there are many ancient sites located in and around the village. These sites include one of the best Anglo-Viking sites to be found in the north west of England. Visitors to the village enjoy strolling around The Barrows, an area of cliffs where many tools and pottery artefacts have been found, which suggests that it was once an ancient burial ground.
