- the adult college is pretty ace ,ledges about head height ledge for grinding on lots of crates and stuff left around by the warehouses .go on a sunday ur less likely to get kicked off. go skate there!!
- Dalston squares great for skating though the floors a bit rough. The magistrates court is great to but id only go on saturdays when its closed or youl get busted straight away.behind woolworths theres a couple of steps . and the skateparks always worth a try
- all the benches outside McDonalds have been covered in rubber padding to stop grinding. the best spot in landcaster is probably the madgastrates law cort (thogh its easy to get kicked out but its closed on satadays) and dolton squar. the skate parks ok but ther tends to be loads of townies (trouser tucked loosers). Get out there SK8!! Tom

- There is a purpose built skate 'park' (though it's small) past Sainsbury's and North Road, opposite Farmfoods.
- Skateboarder usually congregate around Dalton Square, the magistrates court and Prospect Street, (honest).
- a new open air skate park has opened at green ayre in lancaster, opposite farm foods. it is concrete, so its pretty cool. thats the bst place to skate nowadays, in lancaster anyway. opened not so long ago, but the proper opening is on august 2nd.
- Just thought I'd update that the Skatepark at Heysham no longer exists and there are signs up on the University campus stating that skating is not permitted. There are however plans for new skatepark around the Lancaster and Morecambe area. Watch this space...
- No real hotspot. Near the fountain at HMV mostly. There is a skatepark in Heysham as well.
- Umm, Dalton square. A large ankle height platform, another platform raised another few inches on top of it and then some curved ledges about 1m high from there. All are perfectly waxed. And there's the chance to skate on Queen Vic. Skaters always there around 4pm after school and during most of weekend.
The Bus Station Run - I wouldn't bother doing this with anything faster than abec 5. You'll kill yourself. Or hurt yourself.
Start at Dalton Sq, facing the walkabout Inn. Head off down the hill, cross the road at the zebra crossing but don't slow down. You'll have to ollie onto the curb. Keep going down the hill towards the sheltered arcade. Right, you have to be quik, 'cos there is CCTV and the security guard likes to play on the demo in GAME. Skate through the arcade, turn to the first right, past GAME, towards MACDONALDS and turn right and keep going down. Whe, thats fast. And the bus station has some nice benches, which you will never be thrown off.
- Back of woolworths - New St.
- Dalton Square in town. Also, many spots around the museum and the back of the library. Sets of 2-6, including some nice waxed curbs.
LAncaster university campus is a street skating heaven. Banks, flat, sets of 1-15, double sets, handrails, lots of it under cover!! Just dont hassle anyone and you usuall get no bother from the porters. Best time to go is out of term time.
Small park at Heysham (10 minute drive) which has some nice ramps. Occasionally they set out a HUGE street course where the go-karting normally takes place. Definately worth a visit if you arein the area.
- Haven't done it in years, but the middle of Dalton Square has a few bits and pieces... The Law Courts have lovely berms and perhaps a rail or two... The St George's arcade would be good, if they didn't have cctv.
