533 Pilling

"Time and Tide wait for no man" goes the old saying, but in the 1700s George Holden, the vicar of Pilling, lost so many parishioners by drowning that he devised the first tide tables. Pilling means tidal creek and the Lune Estuary is one of the biggest inter-tidal wildfowl roosts in Britain.
