Since Grange-Over-Sands is in a remote location it was allowed to have its culture grow without the influence of other towns. It was only until the introduction of the railways line that people started visiting the town. It however has many untouched things such as ornamental gardens as well as a long standing promenade.
Built in 1891 the Sanatorium in this town was believed to be one of the first Sanatoriums in the whole of England. The town has many different postcards of the sanatorium, maybe you should pick a few up while you're there.
Grange-Over-Sands was once known as a fishing village that was expanded with the network rail that ran from Manchester. The Pier at Grange-Over-Sands has become part of the town's character and is fantastic to share a romantic stroll with your spouse.
Believed to be the oldest house in Grange-Over-Sands, the Hardcragg Hall was built in 1563. Thought to have been a regular visitor by Beatrix Potter the idea of 'The Table Of Pigling Bland' was thought to have originated. Other notable visitors to this historic hall include Oliver Cromwell and England's famous ironmaster John Wilkinson.
