Morecambe bay walk... come and join us

E-mail Print PDF

Come and join us on the exciting walk across Morecambe Bay, led by the Queens Official Guide, Cedric Robinson MBE.

The walk is 7 to 8 miles long, and starts from the stony foreshore at Arnside, proceeding onto the sands and across the channels of the River Kent. The height of the river is usually between knee and thigh deep. Old, comfortable shoes or trainers are recommended rather than expensive walking boots or wellies, and shorts or trousers that you can roll up. There are dangerous quick-sands in the bay. To ensure your safety, stay with your group and follow instructions from the Guide and his helpers at all times.

Please arrive in good time to set off with the group, the bay is too dangerous to cross without a guide.The weather can be anything from driving rain to hot sun, so come prepared to protect yourself against the elements. It is very exposed out on the bay. Don't forget to bring a bottle of water and a snack. The last part of the walk involves crossing gullies on the saltmarsh. These can be quite wide and slippery, so walkers need to be agile enough to get across. The walk ends at Kents Bank Railway Station.

You must register your intention to walk by Thursday 9 July  by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it   as places are limited. Please indicate if you will be giving a donation, being sponsored, or both.

Any last minute instructions or updates will be given by email where possible. They will also be posted on our website, it is your responsibility to check for the latest news.

Donation is £10 per adult, children and dogs free. Or why not get sponsored. Forms can be downloaded here:

>From Arnside Station walk to the start point at the monument, on  Arnside promenade, opposite The Albion pub. On arrival YOU MUST confirm your arrival with the NWESSR representative.

E-mail Print PDF

We wanted to share this story with you as it gives you an insight into the work of NWESSR and the importance of foster homes … right the way through to the homing team who find the perfect homes for the springers that come to us for help…

It also shows just how much we appreciate our many supporters, those supporters who donate to, and buy items from, our charity shop and Facebook auction, those who buy Jo’s cakes and the raffle tickets at Christmas, those who generously sponsor a springer and attend our fun day…. YOU really do make a difference to NWESSR and ensure that we can continue to do what we do…

You can find information on the website about becoming a foster family, being a volunteer, sponsoring a springer or generally supporting us in other ways. Donations can be made by paypal, text or other ways by clicking the ‘PAW’ at the top right of the screen.
