In 2013, I participated in a sponsored walk across Morecambe Bay for Cancer Care. The thought of walking around the coast of Great Britain had not entered into my head, but I have decided to include this walk as part of my greater challenge.
Apparently there are a number of these walks lead by local experts throughout the summer, all for good causes.
This was the ultimate low-level walk and I was looking forward it. The walk was in conjunction with a half-marathon of 13 miles, where the runners joined the walkers at about the half-way point.
We parked at the Cark airfield (which was the end of the walk) and a stream of buses was provided to transport runners and walkers to their various start points across the Bay. We set out from Gibraltar Farm, Silverdale
The walk itself was very enjoyable, especially being so far out from land and definitely worth doing if you are in the area.
Thats all of the narrative, I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking
Distance today = 7 miles
Total distance = 234 miles

Wow. That looks amazing! Now I’m jealous… maybe I’ll go back and do it one day. I remember sitting on the high ground of Humphrey Head (just to the east of the Haven holiday place) and looking over to Arnside and Silverdale and thinking how close they looked!
Hi Ruth, it was such a brilliant thing to do and for a worthwhile cause. Distances out in the Bay are very deceptive, with people/vehicles appearing much further away than they actually were.
