This website is a growing community archive that showcases Morecambe Bay’s archaeological, industrial and maritime past along with stories and voices from those who have made the Bay their home.

The information has come from original research and surveys by Morecambe Bay Partnership, teams of dedicated community volunteers, local historians, Barrow Archives, Lancashire Archives, The Dock Museum and Lancaster Maritime Museum.

New material will continue to be added by trained volunteers as stories continue to be discovered and shared by the Bay’s communities.

If you have a piece of Bay history you would like to share on the website, please email
