Fleetwood You can watch a live webcam from The Mount in Fleetwood, to enjoy views fresh from Fleetwood promenade and seafront. Visit https://www.visitfleetwood.info/about/seafront/webcam-live-from-the-mount/ to catch some great views from The Esplanade.
Lambwatch - Barnoldswick This one may not be a traditional view, but Lambswatch gives you a great opportunity to witness what happens on a small hill sheep farm on the border of Lancashire and Yorkshire. The camera spends most of its time overlooking a field known as the House Meadow; a field that slopes down to the valley bottom where it meets a small stream which flows into the village. During the day, the camera points west, meaning that you could catch some really nice sunsets. As well as sheep, you may also spot free-range hens, as well as pheasants, birds and squirrels.

Morecambe Morecambe Business Improvement District (BID) has had three web-based cameras, known as More-Cam, installed on the top of Treasure Island at the bottom of Euston Road. The cameras, overlooking the promenade and the bay, are intended to give the world a window on Morecambe. See various views of Morecambe Bay via the wecams at https://morecambebid.com/more-cam/
