Arnside Knott
Situated on the edge of Morecambe Bay, this shapely 500 foot limestone hill is a distinctive and beautiful part of the north west countryside that has fine views of the Lake District. The key to the Knott’s diversity is its limestone landscape, which was sculpted by glaciers in the Ice Ages. Over time, the rock, wind-blown soil and man’s intervention have created a
mosaic of habitats including woodland and flower-studded grassland. This two mile walk takes you through a magical place with many orchids and butterflies.

Arnside Tower
Situated about a mile and a half outside of Arnside, and to the South East of Arnside Knott, Arnside tower is a spectacular and almost unique example of a Cumbrian pele tower. The oldest building in the parish, the tower was built in the late 14 or early 15th century, and was a free standing tower (most pele towers had outbuildings or were attached to a house or hall of some sort)
