Home Up Ulverston Low Furness Dunnerdale


New for May 2003!

Our new set of photo-collages!

    If you've visited Ulverston, or the Furness Peninsula, or Dunnerdale, (all in Cumbria, England!) here's a great way to remember your visit. These photo-collages contain up to nine images of memorable scenes, beautifully presented in a mount, and available unframed, or framed in a stylish wooden frame. (14 inches by 12 inches approx. overall size). Each collection is accompanied by a set of notes explaining each view.

    Click on any of the pictures below to see a quick-loading, larger version, then use the Back Button of your browser to return to this page. Alternatively, pressing the 'Full Size' button will open another window with a full-screen version of the picture. This has the best on-screen quality (but inferior to the printed print), but is slower to load.

Ulverston - the li'l town with a big heart!

    Birthplace of Stan Laurel, Ulverston is an old market town which retains much of the flavour of its past, with cobbled streets, eighteenth century alleys and imposing Victorian buildings. The town is overlooked by the Hoad Monument, a replica lighthouse in memory of Sir John Barrow, arctic explorer.

Low Furness - four thousand years of history.

    While visitors flock to the Lake District, the Furness Peninsula is often overlooked, although its low rolling hills and long coastline contain many gems. From the magnificent sandstone ruins of Furness Abbey, to the Victorian splendour of Barrow Town Hall, Furness also has mediaeval castles to offer, and a fine pre-historic stone circle overlooking Morecambe Bay. All captured here in this new collage.

Dunnerdale - Still glides the Stream, and shall for ever glide.

    Taking its title from lines in one of Wordsworth's Sonnets, this collection seeks to display some of the quiet Duddon Valley's variations, from high crag, to placid river, from sweeping fellside to boulder tangled gorge. If you have ever made an excursion up this lovely dale, from Duddon Bridge to the wilds of Cockley Beck, you'll appreciate this fine collection.
