One of our favourite areas of the country and one we lived close to for many years. It is also an area that my family comes from. They were Master mariners in Freckleton and worked out of that village and Preston. My great gg grandfather Joseph Sumner and his young son Joseph were lost on the ship of that name off the coast at Whitehaven Cumbria in 1866. My good fortune was that my great g/grandfather Robert was on another ship as a Master mariner at the time of this tragedy. My great grandmother was Isabella was born some years later. I will write of this later.
This a stunning coastline but as you can see on the photos looking out to the Irish sea it a treacherous and volatile body of water.
