Sunderland Point

During the half term I visited Sunderland point which is located near Lancaster.


It is a tiny village that is often cut of by the tide. To get there you drive along a single track road and park your car on the beach. Once on Sunderland Point the main things to see are the abandoned boats and Sambos Grave.

Sambos Grave is believed to belong to a West Indian slave who was left at Sunderland Point by his master. The story goes that the boy thought he had been abandoned and so refused to eat until he became sick and died. Now the grave is tended to by local school children who have created brightly coloured stones and decorations.
