About The Lancaster Maritime Museum

Trade was particularly important to the development of Lancaster. Collections linking to the merchants and their activities include a portrait of slave trader Dodshon Forster, a portrait of Custom’s Official William Booth and the Valentine Cup. The Museum also features a model of the Waterwitch, one of the luxury horse drawn long barges that carried passengers down the Lancaster Canal from Kendal to Preston. The development of the local ports of Glasson, Heysham, Sunderland Point, Lancaster and Morecambe is also charted. Fishing, an important local industry both today and in the past, is displayed in great detail throughout, as well as different aspects of the social and natural history of Morecambe Bay. The museum also holds a collection of vessels built and used locally including dugout boats and Hector. *Image is not necessarily one of the museum.
