Grange  Lancashire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Grange like this:

GRANGE, a village and a chapelry in Cartmel parish, Lancashire. The village stands on the Winster estuary and on the Ulverstone and Lancaster railway, overlooking Morecambe bay, 2 miles ESE of Cartmel; is in much local repute as a watering-place; and has a station on the railway, and a post office† under Newton-in-Cartmel. ...

The chapelry does not seem to have defined limits; and no statistics of it are returned. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Carlisle. Value, £80.* Patron, the Bishop of Carlisle. The church was built in 1853; and consists of nave, transept, and chancel, with porch and round turret.
