Hoad Monument
Ulverston, English Lake District, Cumbria - England, UK
  Share Location Map  
Hoad Monument is Ulverston’s most famous landmark. Erected in 1850 upon Hoad Hill, it commemorates Sir John Barrow, a founder member of the Royal Geographical Society and an intrepid explorer. The Hoad Monument - also sometimes referred to as the Sir John Barrow Monument - is a replica of Eddystone Lighthouse. It is open to the public during the summer, if the flag is flying, and is well worth a visit if only for the magnificent views of Morecambe Bay and the Lake District.

While on holiday in the South Lakeland, we visited Ulverston and opted to take the part circular path to Hoad Monument. The day was hot, clear blue sky and a clear view of the peninsula.

We noticed the monument while driving from Flookburgh to Lake Windamere and opted to visit Ulverston the day after. We were convinced it was a lighthouse, as it so resembled Eddison's.

The walk to the momument was worthwhile, and taking a rest by sitting on one of many benches, we could see for miles and miles.
