Tide FAQ

My referrer logs report that people regularly visit the Ministry hoping to ascertain the times of low and high tide at Sunderland*, near Lancaster.

I don't think calculations of tide times are published specifically for Sunderland, but the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office's free 'Easytide' service does offer predictions, up to a week in advance, for four ports in the immediate area: Lancaster, Glasson Dock, Heysham and Morecambe.

Easytide has global coverage, so those interested in other (navigable...) locations might like to bookmark the site too. For a price, it also offers 'predictions for the past', which slightly confuses me.

*: aka 'Sunderland Point', though that's a remote headland some distance across muddy fields from the hamlet itself.
