Statue of LS Lowry

The famous Lancashire artist LS Lowry, who painted ‘matchstick men and dogs’, often visited Knott End in the 1940s and 50s. The seaside town features in a number of his paintings.

His favourite spot seems to have been the top of the Ferry Slipway. He painted several depictions of people scurrying along here, in his recognisable style.

It’s fitting then that this is the position chosen in 2015 for the statue of LS Lowry.

Lancaster Castle

See history come alive in the heart of Lancaster

England’s dark history, with tales of persecution, incarceration, punishment and execution, has been lived out over the centuries within the confines of Lancaster Castle.

And now, after almost 1,000 years as an imposing and impenetrable place of penance, the castle’s magnificent John o’Gaunt gates have been swung open to unlock a veritable vault of intrigue, interest and interaction for visitors of all ages.

Lancaster Castle is a medieval castle in Lancaster in the English county of Lancashire. Its early history is unclear, but may have been founded in the 11th century on the site of a Roman fort overlooking a crossing of the River Lune. In 1164, the Honour of Lancaster, including the castle, came under royal control.
