We had a lovely walk today down to Sunderland point. We walked through the quaint finishing village then down the path to where Sambo’s grave is. A very quiet and thought provoking place with wonderful views across the bay. Nice, flat walk, not ideal for...More
If you're visiting Sunderland Point then you must make a visit to Sambos Grave. A lovely walk along the shore from Potts Corner. There's a new seawall been built to protect the grave from flooding and also a new bird hide which I believe is...More

Lovely place to visit. Had not heard of Sunderland Point before never mind Sambo's grave. The whole area is worth walking at low tide and the actual grave is well maintained and very peaceful. Lots of sea birds around and the whole area very unspoilt.

From Lancaster head to Morecambe which is the nearest town, past a village called Heysham, throught Middleton till you get to a place called Overton, then head for the tidal road, please check tide times, then when you get ton the end of the tidal road there is a small narrow path, the first house on the right is where sambo died, carry on until you get to the shore on the other side and turn left, walk for 2 mins until you see a small step over a wall with a sign
