Exploring Morecambe Bay

Making the Bay accessible for everyone to explore.

We are committed to making the Bay and all its wonderful sites, sounds, heritage sites and hidden treasures, more accessible to more people - both to the Bay's communities and also to visitors to the Bay.

This could be by encouraging people to get out and about, exploring new routes using smartphones, discovering the Bay on two wheels or four, or providing maps and other information which opens up the Bay to everyone, no matter where they are or their ability to get out and about.

Interpretation Strategy for Morecambe Bay

We are working hard to make Morecambe Bay more physically accessible, by:

  • Introducing a network of 'Trampers' around the Bay - these are rugged, 4-wheel, electric scooters – popular with disabled ramblers and more suitable for our area than other options, such as laying hard-standing paths
  • Identifying easy routes that help people to explore the Bay, by foot, tramper, bike or with a pram
  • Celebrating the creation of the new Bay Cycle Way - a way of accessing the Bay's communities and heritage sites sustainably and by all the family
  • Creating an electric-bike network along the Bay Cycle Way, so that more people can enjoy the Bay, whatever their age, confidence or ability.

We are also working to ensure that anyone, anywhere can experience the Bay, learn more about and cherish its unique heritage, landscape, towns and villages. We are doing this by:

  • Organising a jam-packed and varied events programme that allows everyone to learn about and celebrate the things that make the Bay special
  • Offering training opportunities to give local people the skills they need, to investigate, understand, record and protect the Bay for future generations
  • Creating maps that highlight the area's unique features
  • Publishing our latest research about local heritage sites online, so that everyone can learn more about and appreicate these sites
  • Creating archives of the materials that come out of our projects, and depositing them locally, so that the record will be there in the long term
  • Providing information about our Bay, the landscape and the heritage at key sites around the Bay - you might see a leaflet, or come across an information panel
