Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Gibraltar Farm Campsite, Hollins Lane, Silverdale, Lancashire
 (голосов: 0)
Gibraltar Farm Campsite, Hollins Lane, Silverdale, LancashireMorecambe Bay is a classic sweeping stretch of coast with an extended shoreline incorporating towns from Fleetwood to Barrow-in-Furness, a road trip of about 70 miles. Both beautiful and dangerous, the landscape may look like the stuff of beach dreams on a hot sunny day, with its expansive golden sands and gleaming sea in the distance, but the erratic tidal patterns hold dangers.

One of the best places from which to enjoy the sands of Morecambe Bay at a safe distance is Gibraltar Farm Campsite, near Silverdale. The camping area lies at the back of the farm, with the access road leading you through a lovely field beyond the trees, to the tent field - a large grassy area set around a rocky protrusion.You can see the capricious curls of Morecambe Bay's waves just beyond the walled perimeter.

If Morecambe Bay tires you out, then you're less than a mile away from Jenny Brown's Point, a popular viewpoint and birdwatching spot overlooking the bay. And the nearby RSPB reserve at Leighton Moss offers access to coastal lagoons, nature trails, and a visitor centre.

COOL FACTOR Farm camping with bay views.

WHO'S IN? Tents, campervans, caravans, dogs (on leads) - yes. Large young groups of under-21s - by arrangement. Groups can hire the woods for £100 per night (10 tents).
