Walk Details
Both walks will cover similar terrain but the 'A' party walk will be 8-9 miles and the 'B' party walk approximately 7 miles. The distance will include woodlands, beaches hills and cliff paths, all the time having the most beautiful views over the bay to Grange over Sands and the Lakeland hills. This walk is definitely a "family" walk with plenty of interest but little strenuous climbing. Although walking boots are ideal, stout walking shoes would be adequate or even Wellingtons but these could be too slippery. The coach will stay at Arnside while the parties ramble, including Arnside Knott and Tower on their routes before having a packed lunch at Silverdale, Any enthusiastic bird watcher would be advised to bring binoculars as there are many species of birds to be seen. This is a most delightful excursion which we thoroughly enjoyed. on our "reconnaissance" trip and would strongly recommend. The walks both end at Arnside where there are tea and other small shops open.
