Visitors to Lancashire in north-west England flock to its seaside resorts of Blackpool and Morecambe.

However, there’s another side to Heysham which is hard to ignore – a nuclear power station and ferry terminal which support a large population beyond the quaint village.

My advice is to concentrate on the village, the remains of St Patrick’s chapel and enjoy those commanding views over the bay.
