A pretty coastal walk from Arnside to Silverdale with a return inland. The beach path has some good views across Morecambe Bay to the southern lakes and the village of Silverdale is worth exploring.
The Arnside & Silverdale AONB is a lovely area to walk in and in my own humble opinion has the best stretch of coastline from the Border with Scotland to the Border with Wales. It is possible to walk along the sand or take the low path which winds its way a few metres above the high tide mark on the cliff side. I enjoyed the views over Morecambe Bay, which are extensive but it is the rocky shoreline and pristine (if a little muddy) sands which impressed me.
My interest was maintained all the way until the path entered the caravan park. Although the beach walking is the highlight of the walk the return to Arnside from the pretty village of Silverdale is thoroughly enjoyable with the ruins of Arnside Tower particularly worth an explore.
If you have the energy try for the summit of Arnside Knott, the views will be reward enough
Most official coastal paths are a few netres higher than the sand. However part of this walk near Silverdale has the right of way passing over land underwater at high tide! There are alternatives.
