Heysham Village

The centre of Heysham village. Some of the cottages date back to the 17th Century.

This building was originally alongside the entrance to the Heysham Head Amusement Park. Opened in 1923 and owned by Septimus Wray, who hailed from Ilkley in Yorkshire, the park had a zoo, a rose garden, swings and rides, and an open air theatre. With attendances declining the park was sold in 1964 to a development company. It was demolished in the 1970s and nothing remains of it today.

Sunday lunch time in Heysham village and the Main Street, looking toward the shore, is deserted. Note 'The Spirit of Heysham' sculpture on the wall.

Anyone want to rent a cottage, or a flat?

The Tea Rooms in the village.

Village pub, The Royal. I later adjourned to it and sampled a beer!

One of several attractive cottages in the village.

Colourful display at the entrance to St. Peter's Church.
