News Feed

The Government is advising that the risk of the coronavirus being passed on to others outdoors is considered to be low as long as people maintain social distancing.

In England you can leave your home to exercise and spend time outdoors for recreation.

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.

Solway Coast AONB

The Solway Coast AONB came under full scale management in 1996. The area stretches from its easterly boundary at Floriston on the Border Esk to Maryport on the West Cumbrian Coast. Its area covers approximately 118 Sq KM. The staff and management of the Solway Coast AONB are totally committed to the area, working in partnership with the Joint Advisory Committee in order to continue the excellent work already completed to protect and enhance the area.

Lockdown Session – Meet Me On The Corner

We thought this Lindisfarne song might be appropriate in the current circumstances as we are now able to ‘meet on the corner’, albeit 2 meters apart. The video is set to the background of The Kings Arms, situated on the corner in Bowness on Solway where we regularly meet for music sessions – we look forward to returning sometime soon.

Monday morning’s reason for apologising during a work call: this duck walked into my kitchen. I do not own a duck. https://t.co/KqOQwC5KHu
