History

Caption for Heysham, St Patrick's Chapel Ruins, Heysham Head 1888

St Patrick himself is said to have been shipwrecked on the head; years later, monks came from his monastic foundation in Ireland and built this chapel in his memory. It dates from Saxon times, the 8th century, and one of the reasons it had stood so long in such an exposed spot is the mortar. It is ground-up sea shells, heated and mixed with boiling water to give a cement-like substance. It is the only example left in England of a single- cell Saxon chapel. Our Victorian ladies posing by the chapel add charm to our photograph—which apart from them could have been taken today.

My partner on the Amusement ride has been my husband now for 52 years ...Read full memory

Morecambe Holiday Camp Heysham

I went to Morecambe Holiday Camp in the late 1960s and loved it. Went for the next few years, I think it was because my parents could leave us to our own devices and enjoy themselves and go dancing. I loved the outdoor swimming pool and swings. You could even hire a Chopper Bike or Space Hopper. Also the cafe ...Read full memory

Happy Memories But Tinged With Sadness

My then fiancé and I went to Heysham Towers holiday camp in the 1950's with a couple of friends for a weeks holiday. Sadly I managed to lose my engagement ring whilst I was there. We have been married now for 57 years but I still miss my ring. If anyone reading this found it I would love to hear from them. He did however buy me a new one but it's not the same.
