Random England fact:
Arnside is located within one of Britain's smallest Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - the Arnside and Silverdale AONB. Arnside is a vibrant and beautiful village in Cumbria, situated on the border with Lancashire, and facing the estuary of the River Kent. The Barrow to Lancaster railway crosses the river here on an impressive viaduct. The old pier opposite the Post Office is a reminder of the days when most of the local trade was done by sea. Arnside is fortunate to have a range of local shops and amenities - including two pubs, a post office, a bakery, fish and chip shop and three general stores. Whilst attracting many tourists and holiday makers, Arnside is also a popular retirement haven, with a thriving and very active community life. There are many interesting and scenic local walks - both along the shoreline and over Arnside Knott. The Arnside Gateway website (www.arnside.co.uk) is designed to help residents and visitors access the many on-line resources related to Arnside and its immediate area.
