Glasson Dock is the perfect place for tourists with a true Ransome-esque flavour!
The magnificent marina and fine boats takes your breath away!
It is the perfect place to go on a bright winter day as I did and really lifts the spirits!
This village with a rich history going back to the eighteenth century is clean, small and quaint with some great places to eat or buy food, notably the Dalton Arms and the Smokehouse.
For Arthur Ransome fans who want the A R experience there are also some walks along the canal in which to enjoy and savour the wildlife of Lancashire!
