Morecambe Heritage Links

…the coastline and bay…

Some useful links – Creating a Heritage Centre for Morecambe takes teamwork and the following sites have had some part in our development.

Workshop Media

The Great War Heritage Project

The Great War Heritage Project, a non-profit organisation, is based in Morecambe. The aims of the project are to raise funds to help find permanent premises to house a lifetime’s collection of Great War artefacts in time for the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War in 2018. They promote this by allowing school visits and the public access to this wonderful resource. All monies raised go towards achieving this goal.

The Carleton

The Carleton sits on the first floor of the Alhambra Building in Morecambe’s West End. Currently undergoing extensive renovation, the owner Ian Bond, has an interest in preserving this part of Morecambe’s history. Once completed he hopes it’ll become a leading venue in the north-west of England.
