The old market town of Ulverston is one of the busiest hubs of Lake District life, offering visitors a bustling hubbub of shops, pubs, cafes, pubs and sights to see. With a population of around 11,000, Ulverston is one of the larger towns of the South Lakes and used by many visitors as a launch pad to the nearby hills, mountains and fells, including the looming prospect of Coniston Old Man. The town's history dates back as far as 1086, when a place named Ulvrestun appeared in the Doomsday Book. In 1280, King Edward I granted Ulverston a charter for a weekly market on a Thursday. Nowadays, residents and visitors alike enjoy markets on Thursdays and Saturdays, with food, clothing and craft stalls selling many wares marked proudly with labels saying `Made in Cumbria'. Ulverston's maritime past saw copper, slate and linen exported from its shores to places around the world. The town also boasts the UK's deepest, widest and shortest canal, thought the one-and-a-quarter mile stretch of water is no longer navigable. Other landmarks that trace Ulverston's past include St Mary's Church, parts of which date back to AD 1111, and the beautiful gothic mansion at Conishead Priory. Accommodation in Ulverston is plentiful and of a wonderfully high standard, particularly when it comes to traditional Lake District cottages. The town is served by Ulverston railway station, which sits on the Furness Line that eventually runs to Manchester Airport. Major attractions in Ulverston include the Laurel & Hardy Museum, located in the town to commemorate the birthplace of comedian Stan Laurel, and the many festivals that take place throughout the year, including the Dickensian Festival in November.
