Heysham Travel guide
Heysham : Michelin's recommendations
Today, Heysham is a port serving Ireland and the Isle of Man, and the site of a nuclear power station equipped with two gas-cooled reactors. The headland overlooking Heysham harbour has six graves cut into the rockface, probably by 8C Irish monks. The remains of the Saxon St Patrick's Chapel lie nearby.
