photograph of Arnside sunsetArnside is a lovely little town (or large village) right on the southern edge of the Lake District. The surrounding area of Arnside and Silverdale is quite exquisite and an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. This shot is taken at the shore where Morecambe Bay becomes a thinner finger of sea between the Furness peninsula and the rest of Lancashire/Cumbria. You can see the viaduct stretching over the water, which carries only a train track from Arnside to Grange-over-Sands. This short cut is well used, as the road route up the A6 and along the A590 takes considerably longer.

The tide here is treacherous - not only is it rapid with a seasonal Bore, (which is so impressive that some brave souls like to surf it) and sinking sand. The coast guard station here warns of approaching high tide with an alarm to make sure that no one is caught by its relentless and speedy approach.

Behind the guest houses, flats, shops and cafes of Arnside, is a thriving community in one of the prettiest places I know. The limestone countryside is criss-crossed by a myriad of foopaths and bridal ways. I have been walking here for over 40 years and still find paths I've never trodden before.

This is also a popular spot for camping and caravanning, with many tiny villages and hamlets all enjoying the ancient woodlands and limestone scenery, with its abundance of birds and other wildlife.
