Grange Over Sands

In the early 1800's Grange over sands was quiet little town in Lancashire. It was the coming of the Railroad by the Furness Railway Company that would put Grange on the map.
The railway company also built the Grange Hotel in 1866. This Hotel would cater for the wealthy visitors now arriving in Grange to sample the "genteel" surroundings and the sea air.
For the past 50 years the Grange has been a family run Hotel, with its present owner taking over in the 90's.
I visited the Grange Hotel on a recent holiday in England. It was very pleasing to see the Hotel looking so splendid, a modern day luxury for visitors to Grange over sands.
The Grange and i share a part of history, i used to work there. Take a look with the link.
