“The idea that Grange is only a winter or early spring resort, and that in summer it is extremely hot and enervating, is very erroneous, as in the warmest weather there is always a refreshing breeze blowing gently in from the open expanse of the estuary, and its ozonic properties are most relaxing.”
Mason’s Pocket Guide to Grange-over-Sands, 1901
Many thanks to all those who attended our open days in 2013, we were very pleased to have so many visitors and we have been able to raise well over £24,000 for the NGS charities in the last 5 years.
We look forward to another successful year in 2014. Our open days will be the first Sunday in the month between June and September - cream teas will be available. We hope to see you then - please come if you get the chance.
Organised groups and private tours are welcome on other days at a cost of £5 per person, prior appointment essential. As large coaches will be unable to access the drive, it is recommended that passengers dismembark at the bottom of Hampsfell Road. We will gladly collect by car any visitors that have walking difficulties. Artists and photographers also welcome at any time by appointment.
Morning coffee/tea with biscuits is available at £2.00.
Afternoon cream teas - £4.50.
