What to bring:
Please bring the following with you for the walk:
- Wear old / Comfortable trainers
- Wear comfortable clothing and dress accordingly
- Bring a hat
- Water ( please take into account that on the sands there are no toilets )
- Small first aid kit for yourselves to deal with any minor injuries / blisters etc
We recommend you arrive @ Arnside 1 hour before your walk start time, this allows you to complete your registration and gives plenty of time, as the walk starts on the given time not before and not after.
Location - Please meet on the prom, just down from the Albion pub. Michael and his team will be wearing bright yellow t-shirts.
All charities are required to send to us 1 week prior to your walk date all walkers details, name, contact number & email address as part of the Governments track and trace.
Dogs are allowed on the walk at a fee of £5, however please keep your dog under control at all times, they are solely the owners responsibility.
At the briefing our guide Michael Wilson, will NOT be wearing a mouth & nose covering to enable him to speak clearly to all walkers and will be using a megaphone.
During the briefing all walkers are required to wear a mouth & nose covering and maintain social distancing, social distancing rules apply at all times and we shall imply the government's guidelines at the time.
The walk will now finish at Grange Promenade in Grange, due to their being no toilets at Kents Bank, this also means walkers can use either Kents Bank or Grange Station, there are also coffee shops on the prom making it a more sensible choice to end the walk here due to Abbot Hall being closed.
There is the option to walk along the prom past guides farm to Kents bank or along the marsh however Michael will finish the guided walk at Grange prom.
The toilets are chargeable using a contactless method to the sum of 30p.
All walkers are responsible for getting to the walk start point and leaving after the walk.
There will be a tractor as an emergency back up to assist in the event of anyone being laim or unable to complete the walk.
Why not mark your bay walk achievement?
At the end of the walk certificates are available and are signed by the Queens' guide - Michael Wilson for a minimum donation of £1.50.
The monies raised from the sale of the certificates helps towards the ongoing running costs of the bay walks, ( diesel for the tractors, insurance, maintenance of vehicles).

Dive right in – Pandemic Permitting…
Working together with members of the WhatsApp Outreach Group, we now have many events planned for the GBSD campaign along with Garden Visits, Naked Walks and any other opportunity to enjoy the freedom from being clothed and to socialise with friends and newcomers. Thankfully, John Rodgers is weaving his magic by creating events in the South of the region with the Dorothy Clive Gardens visit, the Shropshire Canal boat Cruise with Fish & Chips is also arranged and Naked walks are to be added – our large region is now looking well served.
Recently recruited BN Campaigns team volunteers David Butterfield and Tony McCauley are now onboard – David will specialise in Naked Lake District walking and Tony McCauley is keen to get started by opening doors for GBSD events and any other venues that are willing to accommodate our Naturist lifestyle.
Ron O'Hare has been beavering away - communicating with members from all over the British Isles in order to create a sensational Summer spectacular with the BN / BHF Fundraising Alliance – he now has over 50 venues on his ‘Hit List’ The ‘Great British Synchronised Skinny Dip’ which is scheduled for the 17th July at 2pm seems to have caught the imagination of BN volunteers (official and unofficial) from all corners of the UK. The intention being to link the events to the ‘Just Giving’ page within the BN Website and raising funds for the charity British Heart Foundation.
Due to the success of the ‘Naturist Outreach Group’ on WhatsApp and Zoom, our region is leading the way in terms of event numbers created – so far! We now have the opportunity to perform the ‘Cross Morecambe Bay guided Walk’ exclusively for Naturists on the 20th June, tickets are now on sale via the BN Events Team.
If you wish to join our WhatsApp / Zoom group, just email your full name and WhatsApp number.
