The Morecambe lightship ashore at Battery Point after parting her moorings again in a storm
Keith Willacy collection
The Morecambe lightship ashore near the Winter Gardens after parting from its moorings in a storm, December 1903. Due to the opening of Heysham Harbour in 1904 and the ending of passengers and goods traffic from Morecambe, she was no longer required and was left to rot away on the foreshore. The photograph was taken in 1920’s.
