On a glorious afternoon we went 6 miles up the coast to Jenny Brown’s Point, a perfect vantage point for looking out over the whole expanse of Morecambe Bay.

With five rivers draining into it Morecambe Bay is the largest expanse of intertidal sand and mudflats in the UK. It covers a approximately 120 sq miles.

The coastline is a series of peninsulas, created by the Rivers Wyre, Lune, Keer, Kent and Levens. The sands can be treacherous due to the shifting channels of the rivers and the formation of quick sand.

However the beauty of the area is recognised by the designation given to Arnside and Silverdale,”Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”.
