Please see the governments latest advice on on access to green spaces 

When visiting the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at this time please:

  • Respect local communities and their concerns, please be aware you may need to be prepared to make the necessary decision to turn around if the area or car park looks busy, or is full, and come another time
  • The fire risk is currently very high – no fires, no barbeques, no smoking.
  • Follow the Countryside Code and always – leave no trace of your vist and put litter in the bin or take it home, keep dog’s under effective control and pick up after them.

It was tough going at Crosscanonby Carr Nature Reserve today but the Open Spaces team were determined and didn’t let us down. We’ll be tackling the paths next. Great to be making steps in the right direction and getting this lovely reserve back on track.

Looking for an easy cycle 🚴🏼‍♀️with beautiful views🌊 and off the main roads? Park up at Allonby, hop on the cycleway to Maryport and have a nice flat ride to the Pier. Stop off for a little history at Milefortlet 21 on the way ⛏. Treat yourself to an ice cream 🍦at the Aquarium 🐠or at Twentymans on your return. Approx 12 flat miles, lovely ☺️
