Grange over Sands lies on the Morecambe Bay coast in South Cumbria. The town was developed in the Victorian era with the arrival of the railway and became a popular seaside destination. The town boasts a beautiful promenade which stretches the full length of the town and is popular with walkers and cyclists. In 1932 the promenade hosted a lido, (outdoor swimming pool), however the now Grade II Listed building was not sustainable and closed in 1993.
The sea air in Grange is said to have therapeutic qualities which convinced the Health Authorities of the day to open the first Sanitorium for Tuberculosis sufferers near Grange in 1891. The town has been used to aid people’s suffering during the first and second world wars, but also became very popular with holiday makers, which is very apparent when you witness the size and quality of the grand hotels in the town.
With its own railway station servicing Barrow, Lancaster and Ulverston, Grange is a great place to rent property and enjoy the scenic seaside town with a grand history.
