Glasson Dock, Lancashire. Small working dock in the village of Glasson on the River Lune Estuary, near Lancaster. A group of 18th century merchants from Lancaster built Glasson Dock to import goods from the West Indies in 1746. Well-known cabinet makers Waring and Gillow started their business here by collecting mahogany dunnage used to protect cargoes arriving at Glasson, and using it to make furniture. The area includes businesses, residential settlements dating back to the early days of the Dock, with shops, seafaring public houses, and leisure craft marinas.
