Walking and wildlife gems throughout October in and around Grange over Sands

During October and organised and led by Cumbria Wildlife Trust are two Conservation Work Parties in the Grange over Sands area. The work parties held throughout Cumbria offer the chance to be educated and learn about each special location whilst at the same time helping to save and conserve rare species and habitats within it.

Firstly on Thursday October 6th the location is Brown Robin Nature Reserve. Brown Robin is a very special site with superb views of Morecambe Bay. Within the reserve you’ll be rewarded with fungi, sites of geological and historical interest, spring flowers and wildflowers and the spectacular view. From 9.30 am until 4pm those attending the work party will have the chance of experiencing various tasks including coppicing at this varied nature reserve above Grange-over-Sands learning some traditional forest management techniques.

Before winter arrives then it’s really worth doing one or all of the Morecambe Bay Partnership Seldom Seen walks. A set of 5 maps has been developed by Barrow-based artists Art Gene covering Morecambe Bay, to help you explore from Walney Island near Barrow-in-Furness in South Cumbria, all around the estuaries to Cockerham, south of Lancaster in north Lancashire. The Flookburgh to Humphrey Head is of particular interest and great when staying in Gramge over Sands. Uncover ancient sites, explore the fishing and shipbuilding heritage and immerse yourself in this unique corner of Britain and especially the compelling landscape.

Bay Villa bed and breakfast in Grange over Sands makes for a relaxing place to unwind after enjoyable but also packed days of conservation or walking. The breakfast will certainly set guests up for a full day out. Rooms start from £125.
