Morecambe Bay's Tidal Islands : Guided walk to Chapel Island

PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS NOW CANCELLED

 

We're sorry but due to the wet weather and unsafe water levels in the channel we are unable to proceed with the walk on Sunday. We're very sorry for the disappointment but need to keep everyone safe. We will be contacting everyone who has booked a ticket. A new walk is planned for September. Watch this space for info!

 

 

 

 

Meeting Point:  Meet at 3pm. The walk will finish by 6pm (if not before). Full details of the meeting point will be sent out to those registered ahead of the walk. 

 

Morecambe Bay Partnership is delighted to be hosting this rare opportunity to explore Chapel Island, near Ulverston. The walk will be led by the Queen's Guide to the Leven Estuary, Ray Porter, who will lead us safely across the Ulverston Channel which flows between the shore and the island.

Event Information:

Be prepared: the very first part of the walk crosses sticky and slippery mud, but this soon eases to firm sand. Some crossing of water channels may be necessary so you may get a bit wet. Remember the coast can be breezy and cold - take an extra/windproof layer and your hat!

Suitable for aged 6 and upwards. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome.

Those wishing to visit Chapel Island should not attempt the crossing at any time other than low tide and as part of a guided walk and should seek local advice.

Pre-booking is required for this event.

Cost: £12 for adults £3 for children (aged 6 and over).

All proceeds will go to the Morecambe Bay Partnership Charity and will play a vital role in helping to create a thriving Bay rich in wildlife and heritage that brings joy to all. Your gift will help save the Bay’s birds, clean up our beaches, improve disabled access and get more people caring for and celebrating the history that shaped us.
