Stunning limestone pavements, ancient woodlands, intimate orchards and meadows and an impressive coastline make Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty one of England's finest landscapes. The work of the AONB Partnership aims to conserve and enhance this extraordinary place now and for the future.
A great family day out!
October 4th, 2017
In spite of the unpredictable weather, over 800 visitors came through the gate and enjoyed browsing the colourful displays in the marquees; finding out all about orchards and the wildlife they support; getting advice on buying, planting and looking after fruit trees; tasting varieties of apple you don’t find in the supermarket and Edi’s delicious apple juice; learning about traditional coppice crafts …the list just goes on and on!
The local produce stalls proved popular; the woodturning, metal-forging and drystone walling demonstrations drew the crowds; and Peter’s guided walk around the orchard was as popular as ever.
