It is close to the Lake District, and just north of Morecambe Bay, neighboured by Swarthmoor, Pennington and Rosside.Ulverston's most visible landmark is Hoad Monument, a concrete structure built in 1850 to commemorate statesman and local resident Sir John Barrow. The monument provides views of the surrounding area, including Morecambe Bay and parts of the Lake District.Ulverston Canal, no longer navigable, was once a vital component of the town's economy and is still celebrated with an art installation.GeographyUlverston is a comparatively large civil parish.

In the north are hills such as Coniston Old Man. The settlements of the parish are mainly concentrated in the eastern part.
