Morecambe Bay Walk 2021
See the beautiful Morecambe Bay from a new perspective. Our popular Morecambe Bay Walk will return this summer.
The wonderful experience will offer you unbeatable views of the Morecambe Bay, Lancashire Coastline and the Lake District. The 8 mile sponsored walk, which is hosted by The Guide to the Sands Trust, will take approximately 3 hours to complete.
By taking part in the walk you will be ensuring local people receive vital and specialist care when they need it the most. Every step you take, mile you complete and pound you raise will help local people with life limiting illnesses.
The art of walking successfully across Morecambe Bay is to be prepared for a few eventualities.
Changeable weather and a varying terrain will be encountered. First and foremost you should be able to walk 7 or 8 miles.
Underfoot, Arnside to the shore includes sand, footpaths, lanes and marshland. The bulk of the crossing is flat sand often rippled and sometimes covered in water. Half way across you will navigate the Kent River where you can expect te average depth of up to 2ft (60cm) for a distance of some 50m. The final leg of the walk is over marsh to Kent's Bank station; this is a clear pathway but may sometimes be slippery.
