Walk description:

You will start and finish your walk at the RSPB visitor centre which is approximately 300 metres from Silverdale Station.

Leaving the RSPB centre turn right onto the minor road. After 375 metres you will need o turn right again into a Bridleway down to the Moss. The first part is quite steep and stony but after this the path becomes flat and has a well compacted stone surface.

When you get halfway across the causeway you will find a public hide, which does provide wheelchair access. At the end of the Causeway there is a pair of stone gateposts, it is now time to turn around and retrace your steps.


Additional notes:

There is a small strip of approximately 50 metres which is quite steep. As this is a there and back route you will have to do this twice!

This is a fantastic walk if you enjoy bird watching and spotting. There are several places to stop and rest or watch the wildlife.

The RSPB has a little shop, toilets and a cafe. This is located on the first floor and can be reached by a self operated chair lift. Staff in the centre can help when moving between a wheelchair and the chair lift.
