Walks in Silverdale and Arnside : An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Paperback
by Brian Evans
A popular walking guide to the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), at the top of Morecambe Bay in Cumbria and Lancashire, north west England, overlooking the Lake District. 21 day walks are described and hand-illustrated, between Carnforth, Holme, Milnthorpe and Arnside, climbing wooded hills and limestone escarpments with views of the Lake District fells, visiting nature reserves including Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, crossing the Bay itself to Kents Bank and following the canal.
Many are the visitors who have speeded past to more renowned National Parks, who, when they do turn off to Silverdale or Arnside, wonder why they didn't come to this beautiful area before.
The combinations of rocky coastal scenery, woodland and rough limestone hills either side of the M6 in north Lancashire, make this a paradise for walkers.
There is an extensive network of well walked paths through an intricate rocky landscape, a joy to explore.
The area is renowned for its flora and fauna, its historic buildings and interesting geological features. Walks are between 2 and 8 miles but packed with interest, taking longer than their mileage implies, and can be combined for longer days.
