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.
