Carnforth to Arnside - Linear Walk

Group: Take a Hike

Saturday 19 September, 2020
10 miles

The maximum number of people on this walk will be 10, including the walk leaders.

This is a 10 mile linear walk from Carnforth to Arnside via Warton Crag and Silverdale. Walkers can then catch the train from Arnside back to the starting point (£3.70).

From Carnforth station we head to Warton via country lanes. We then pick up the Lancashire Coastal Way before eating our packed lunches on the edge of Silverdale. If the tide is out at Silverdale, we will walk along the beach for a mile. If the tide is in, we will go through Silverdale village. We then pick up a country lane before heading up to a lovely local viewing point which gives great views of Morecambe Bay and the Lake District. We then drop downhill into Arnside where the walk finishes.

Some sections will be muddy.

There are no toilets on the route.

Quick reminder – bring your own santizer and mask for the train.

There may be the option of getting take away fish and chips at Arnside.

Meeting Point:
Meet outside Carnforth train station at 1250, to start the walk at 1300. There is a car park near the station and street parking nearby.

Return Journey: We intend to finish the walk by 1730, to get the 1758 train back to Carnforth (arrives 1810). Or there are trains from Arnside at 1844, 1943, 2022 if you want to spend more time there (please check train times).

Alternatively you could park near Arnside train station and get the 1233 train from Arnside to Carnforth (arriving 1243) for the start of the walk. Please notify the walk leaders in advance if you are doing this, so they will wait for this train to arrive before setting off.
