The village of Heysham lies on the Lancashire coast, overlooking the famous Morecombe Bay, which is located in the Northwest of England. Heysham boasts a modern ferry port and is the end point for the gas pipeline that runs from Morecombe field in the Irish Sea to Heysham. The village is also the terminus for the Stanlow-Heysham oil pipeline and in the immediate neighbourhood there are two nuclear power stations with a third one already in the planning.
The unpredictable sea

In an area such as this, where the weather can be unpredictable, where the shores are rocky and strong tides prevail, the person at the helm of any ship, let alone somebody running a ferry across to Ireland or the Isle of Man, must be highly skilled and responsible.
