About Silverdale

The village of Silverdale once sat on the River Kent, but in the 1920's the river changed its course to reach the sea further westward. The deep-water channel of the Kent is now almost four miles away and it is hard to imagine that steamers once called at Silverdale with holiday makers enjoying the trip from Morecambe Bay.

This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the village with its winding lanes and paths makes an excellent centre for walking. These lanes offer good vantage points for spectacular ocean view taking in the wide sweep of Morecambe Bay and across the Kent estuary to Grange-over-Sands.

There area is close to a wealth of fine tourist attractions and in close proximity to the village is the Leighton Moss RSPB nature reserve. The reserve is a northern outpost for bitterns and bearded reedlings, which mainly breed in East Anglia.

Jenny Brown's Point, named so for an old lady who lived on the shore in the 18th-century, is accessible via a track from the village.

The Victorian novelist Mrs Gaskell lived in Silverdale, and Charlotte Bronte, as a young girl, stayed with friends who lived in the village.
