Crosscanonby Carr

The word Carr comes from the Norse word Kjarr, meaning wet woodland or marsh where willow and alder thrive. Crosscanoby Carr was a Solway Rural Initiative project, which evolved from a vandalised derelict site; it now provides a wetland, meadow and woodland refuge for numerous animals, birds and plants. The site has a number of water features so consideration must be given to the supervision of young children and vulnerable people.

Unlike other family walks, Crosscanonby Carr is a nature reserve, the first in the Solway AONB. The site is a mosaic of habitats as a wetland oasis which is open for everyone to enjoy, it also has an Access for All Trail provided for people with all disabilities.
