Come and explore Morecambe Bay – a great place to experience amazing sunsets, discover natural landscapes and unearth your adventurous side on one of the most beautiful coastlines in Britain.
Morecambe Bay stretches from the south west coast of Cumbria to Fleetwood in Lancashire, taking in coastal towns such as Grange-over-Sands, Morecambe and Heysham. The headlands of Morecambe Bay offer spectacular, seascape views; with wide-open vistas across the tidal sand and mud flats towards the Lake District and the Bowland Fells.
The Bay also offers opportunities for a range of amazing wildlife experiences, like watching the oystercatchers and other waders march up the shore at Hest Bank, Bolton-le-Sands, in front of the advancing tides, or even looking for seals lazing around the south tip of Walney.
More to Explore is developing a series of all-ability routes and associated all-terrain mobility scooter hire venues. The aim is to open up parts of Morecambe Bay to a wider range of users from families with pushchairs to wheelchair users, allowing the discovery and exploration of the rich cultural and environmental heritage of the area.
The project is at an early stage – currently piloting an initial series of routes and working with partners to establish a network of hire venues and volunteers. Morecambe Bay Partnership is committed to continue to develop and promote more facilities as the project develops. Your feedback and suggestions for new routes, or offer to get involved in some way is very welcome!
This website provides advice on where and how to access a fantastic series of all-ability routes – there are downloadable maps for a series of routes, plus an interactive map showing lots more route suggestions. There is background information about all-ability mobility scooter use and hire locally, useful links as well as ideas for how to get more involved in this project. Please take a look around this site, get inspiration and information and then come and visit Morecambe Bay!
