Experience a Cross-Bay Walk:

With over 120 square miles of Morecambe Bay sands exposed at low tide, you will be following the same route used for over 200 years.

By taking part in a cross-bay walk you will experience the stunning beauty of Morecambe Bay in a unique way. 

Crossing the bay can be perilous with its quick sands, shifting channels and the threat of the incoming tide.

It is therefore vital to cross the sands with an experienced and knowledgeable guide who will traverse the ever-changing sands and in the bay. 

Cross-bay walks are internationally renowned for their historic value, as people have been crossing the bay with a royally appointed guide since the 1500s.

There are about 30 walks during the spring and summer.

Most walks cross the sands between Arnside and Kents Bank, and, until recently, led by Cedric Robinson MBE, the Queen’s Official Guide. 

Cedric Robinson MBE has been leading walks since 1963 but decided to retire aged 86 in 2019.

His successor is a Flookburgh fisherman called Michael Wilson who will be the 26th Guide over Sands.

The Guide Over Sands Trust returned with its first walk of the year on May 22nd, 2021.

Over 200 walkers returned to the sands following lockdown.
