Lying just across the border from Arnside in Lancashire, Silverdale is a pleasant village offering sheltered walks through limestone woodland and panoramic views along the shore with several pubs and tea rooms for refreshments along the way.
The Victorian novelist Elizabeth Gaskell (1810–1865) regularly holidayed in Silverdale and is said to have written some of her works in the village.
Take a walk up to the highest point of Eaves Wood to see The Pepperpot, a 20ft stone memorial built in 1887 to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. From this point you get a fantastic panoramic view of the entire village and on a clear day you can see as far as Lancaster and even Blackpool Tower.
