  • Well worth a visit, The home of George Fox and early Quakerism, it is nicely maintained in 1650s style, with beautiful gardens, a Meeting house and cafe. Not easy to find but a nice couple of hours may be enjoyed here. Free parking en site.
  • Went for day as a tourist to Ulverston. Recorded tour was very good - not too long but informative. Very restful sort of place. Cheese scones very good too.
