Walking in Silverdale & Arnside

Walking in Silverdale & Arnside

by: Brian Evans
The environs of Silverdale and Arnside will never cease to surprise you. This area of north-west England enjoys some of the best coastal scenery and woodland paths, making the Silverdale area a wonderful place to visit. There are low hills with exquisite woodland paths and old parkland, an area of limestone grassland and pavement. Views are memorable over Morecambe Bay, the hills of the Lake District or back to the long line of the Pennines.

From Morecambe Bay in the west to Hutton Roof in the east, there are possibilities for a variety of walks, whether on uplands or by the side of the Lancaster Canal. The area is compact: north to south from Milnthorpe to Carnforth it is 7 miles; west to east from Arnside Point to Hutton Roof is 8 miles. Much of the area lies within the Arnside and Silverdale Area of outstanding Natural Beauty. The equally beautiful limestone hills of Farleton Fell and Hutton Roof, although not included in the AONB, are also covered.

The guide has 21 walking routes with detailed descriptions as well as suggestions for additional shorter walks and is beautifully illustrated with numerous colour photographs and very detailed sketch maps of the walks. There is an informative introduction to the area covering geology, industry and wildlife to help ensure you get the most out of the walks.
