I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one close by in Beckermet I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease.

Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you.

I am looking at a couple of flats in Beckermet which have in the region of 50 years unexpired on the lease term. Do I need to be concerned?
There are plenty of short leases in Beckermet. The lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As a lease gets shorter the value of the lease decreases and it becomes more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on such properties. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We advise that you get professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.
