Ulverston is a small market town with a population of around 11,600. It was just voted the 3rd best market town to live in England in 2018 🙂
Historically Ulverston was in Lancashire, the town is in the Furness area 8 miles north-east of Barrow-in-Furness. It is close to the Lake District, and just north of Morecambe Bay, neighboured by Swarthmoor, Pennington and Rosside.
Ulverston’s most visible landmark is Hoad Monument, built in 1850 to commemorate statesman and local resident Sir John Barrow, and appears in several photos in the Ulverston 2019 Calander.
January – Snow showers moving in
Always a stunning sight as another snow shower moves in from across the bay. As a lover of snow and winter, it’s always great to see more snow moving in, even when there’s already some on the ground.
