Bardsea and Chapel Island, seen from Birkrigg Common. The elegant church steeple stands alongside the wide variety of house styles in Bardsea. Behind lies the channel carrying the outflow from the Leven, with Chapel Island beyond.

                                          Viaduct-200-Pict0026.jpg (7937 bytes)

The Leven Viaduct, viewed from the shore close to Conishead Priory, near Ulverston. The viaduct carries the railway over the estuary where the Leven runs into Morecambe Bay. The sands here are treacherous, crossed by shifting channels.

Canal Foot Pier and the Leven Viaduct across the sands. Deep channels cut into the mud in this area, and the main river channel can move between the edge of the shore and the centre of the estuary. Haverthwaite Mosses lie in the background.

Code LF-34 Chapel Island, Leven Estuary

Chapel Island Timebers-200-Pict0009.jpg (9385 bytes)


Unframed mounted print: 10.99 (includes carriage)

These ancient timbers stand on the foreshore below the grounds of Conishead Priory, and look across to the low cliff of Chapel Island. The calm waters hide treacherous sands, at what was once a regular crossing point over this neck of Morecambe Bay.
