Heysham is a small, coastal village near Lancaster in the county of Lancashire. It overlooks Morecambe Bay and has two nuclear power stations which are visible landmarks from hills in the surrounding area. Heysham's hidden gem is the shoreside Heysham Village, centred on a group of charming seventeenth-century cottages. Settlement here can be traced back to prehistoric times, though proudest relic is the well-preserved Viking hog's-back tombstone in Saxon St Peter's church, set in a romantic churchyard below the headland. Just up the lane, on the headland itself, the earlier ruins of St Patrick's chapel occupy a superb vantage-point over the bay and to the lakeland hills beyond. The harbour was opened in 1787 and as trade expanded so did the village. A walk around the harbour is an interesting and rewarding experience, and the short stroll up Tithebarn Hill is rewarded with stunning views.
Exit M6 J34 & follow A589 to Morecambe & Heysham for 3.5 miles. At 2nd roundabout take A683 to Heysham which is 3.5 miles away. Follow signs for Ferry Port which is at the west end of Heysham village.
