Features

Morecambe Bay is the largest intertidal area in the UK where four estuaries join in a horseshoe shaped expanse of sands, with tidal islands, hidden beaches, and exceptional heritage value.  It is an outstanding landscape of a spectacular scale and grandeur and internationally significant for wildlife, perhaps the UK’s most important biodiversity hotspot, supporting exceptional populations of birds.

For centuries humans have earned livelihoods from fishing, seafaring, trade and farming the coastal fringes, shaping the coastal landscape and carving out a unique history and tremendous cultural richness. The coastal communities look towards one another across the Bay. The railway also provides a physical link that echoes these deep economic and social connections with the Bay.

Through features by guest authors we will explore more about the Bay, how special it is and the work underway to help the communities of the Bay keep it that way.
