Five Things to Do in Ulverston

By Rachael Parkin

The new film about the lives of the legendary Laurel and Hardy, ‘Stan and Ollie’ is now playing in cinemas across the country but did you know that Stan Laurel was born less than 30 minutes away from Coniston and the Coppermines Valley in the south Cumbrian market town of Ulverston?

With its quaint, cobbled streets and an abundance of shops, pubs and cafes Ulverston is worthy of a visit any time of year but with now, with its most famous son back in the limelight, it’s a better time than ever to spend some time in this fine and historic town.
