Beautiful sandstone headland renowned for its eighth-century chapel and rock hewn graves; a wonderful urban green space

This sandstone headland, south of Morecambe and north of Heysham port, rises majestically above the sea. See the remains of St Patrick's Chapel, built in the early Medieval period and now a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The eight body-shaped, rock-cut graves here are believed to be unique.

Enjoy a walk in the wide open spaces of the Barrows, an area of coastal grassland and peaceful woodland, which used to be a garden in the picturesque era.
