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.

Big Red Bus Visits the Coast
Come and Talk to Us About Your Coast and Sea!

On Friday 30 August, Solway Firth Partnership (SFP) will visit three locations along the Solway Cumbrian Coast on a Red Routemaster Bus to talk to people about their coast and sea.
SFP staff will be on the Big Red Bus to welcome visitors on board to learn more about marine planning in the Solway and why it might be important to them. Posters explaining marine planning will be displayed and there will be an opportunity for the visitors to leave their opinions about what is most important to them about the sea and coast.
The locations for the Big Red Bus to visit on Friday 30 August are:
• Silloth Waterfront car park: 10.00am to 12.30pm
• Allonby Beach car park: 1.00pm to 4.00pm
• Maryport Harbourside (opposite the Aquarium): 4.30pm to 6.30pm

We didn’t catch the stickleback, but we did find…

very happy children paddling about in the ponds, with nets, at Harrington Nature Reserve.
During the family fun morning, children and parents explored the ponds and meadow, for mini-beasties, with the support from parents and volunteers.
Building memories, staying special.
Look out for our next event on Wednesday 21st at Harrington beach.
