This extraordinary place is famous for its amazing wildlife, stunning scenery, and superb walks. From the simple beauty of the Lady's-slipper Orchid to the shining sands of Morecambe Bay, the area is simply awe-inspiring - full of natural spectacles and a surprise around every corner.
Woodland has probably been present at Grubbins Wood, a Cumbria Wildlife Trust reserve, since medieval times, although historically it would have been regularly coppiced to produce timber. Highlights include:
- Bluebell and Wild Garlic carpeting the woodland floor in spring and Greater Butterfly and Spotted Orchids in flower
- Don’t miss the Southern Wood Ants busy carrying food to their large nest mounds in the summer
- In autumn, bright red berries on the Lancastrian Whitebeam
- Waders and wildfowl down on the foreshore in winter
