Askam in Furness

Askam in Furness


Askam in Furness owes its existence to the iron ore industry. The industrial buildings were demolished in 1933. In addition to street names, another sign of the former iron works is Askam pier, which is made of slag from the works.
It has it's own lifeboat station which was established in 1970, and there is a fountain commemorating Queen Victoria's Jubilee.
Askam in Furness is worth a visit for its views across the Duddon estuary and its long beach that boasts an outstanding breeding site for the country's rare Natterjack Toad.
