Morecambe Bay is an area about ten miles across and eighteen long, a bay open to the south-west with a 30ft tidal range. Brought to national attention in 2005 after the tragic deaths of 21 cockle pickers, it consists of huge sand-flats at low tide and for the fishermen there are plentiful and diverse pickings of cockles, shrimps, prawns and whitefish. Several bustling towns fringe the coast, including Barrow-in-Furness, renowned for its shipbuilding, Ulverston with its short canal, Grange-over-Sands and Morecambe, both of which developed through tourism, and Fleetwood, once a great trawling port.
