Morecambe Bay covers a vast area of the North West coast, from the outer limits of Lancashire’s coastal resorts in the south to the edges of the Lake District in the north.
There are many great walks on the beaches and surrounding areas along its length and we’ve picked half a dozen of our favorites from our archives.
Knott End-on-Sea is located on the southern edge of Morecambe Bay, across the Wyre estuary from Fleetwood. We head inland from the promenade on this walk and explore the Wyre coutryside
Heading north, we come to Glasson Dock which lies at the mouth of the Lune Estuary. We start at the Marina at Glasson Dock and head south down the coast towards Cockersand Abbey.
On the opposite bank of the River Lune lies Sunderland Point, one of the more remote points of the county. We start off inland at Middleton and head south towards the peninsula.
North of Morecambe is the small village of Hest Bank, which is the start and end point of this circular walk. We head north up the coast to Carnforth, and then return back south via Bolton-le-Sands.
Lindale lies on the north-eastern side of Morecambe Bay, close to the River Kent. We start here but head inland and northwards towards High Newton and explore the southern edges of the expanded Lake District.
Flookburgh is on the Cartmel Peninsula which is where both the Kent and Levens rivers meet Morecambe Bay. We head north towards nearby Cark, taking in a section of of the Cumbria Coastal Way.
