Solway Coast Area Events for January 2015
|Friday 9th January||GUIDED CIRCULAR WALK FROM SILLOTH TO GRUNE POINT||Come along and blow away those winter cobwebs on a bracing walk, starting at the Discovery Centre in Silloth at 10.00am. If you have binoculars, please bring them as there may be plenty of birdlife. The walk is roughly 7 miles with some rough ground but no hills!
Please wear suitable warm clothing and bring a packed lunch. You need not complete the whole walk. If you would like to do less please contact the AONB Office.
|Thursday 15th January||MAWBRAY BANKS SCRUB REMOVAL||As part of the management of this Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), we will be removing some of the invasive scrub and gorse over the next few months.
Please meet at Mawbray Yard Car Park at 10.30am off the B5300. All tools will be provided but please wear suitable clothing and bring a packed lunch. We also hope to have baked ‘tatties’ when we burn the brash, so the day may last a little longer!
|Wednesday 21st January||LITTER PICK WOLSTY TO BECKFOOT||Meet at Beckfoot Car Park at 10.30am to pick litter along the beach from Beckfoot towards Wolsty. All tools will be provided but please wear suitable clothing and bring a packed lunch.|
|Thursday 29th January||BLACKTHORN AND SCRUB REMOVAL ORTON MOSS||This special woodland reserve,is managed by Cumbria Wildlife Trust (CWT). We are helping CWT to maintain it as part of our input into the Solway Wetland Partnership Project. Much of the scrub which edges the wood land, is very over grown and needs to be thinned out.
We will remove and burn some scrub for the next few weeks, so please meet at the entrance to the Moss at NY 339 543 at 10.30am. To find this road, turn off the Carlisle road to Great Orton at Sceughmire Farm; or phone the office for directions. Please bring suitable footwear and clothing and a packed lunch.
NB: AONB Officers and those who lead walks and activities on their behalf cannot accept any responsibility for any injuries or losses incurred by any other person whilst taking part in any activities organised by or on behalf of the AONB.
Please also note that walks will only take place if three or more people attend. So please phone the day before the walk to book a place.
