A national and internationally important wildlife area

Arnside Knott is covered with limestone grassland and mixed woodland, which attracts a variety of insects and is especially renowned for butterflies.The area is made up of species-rich limestone grassland, woodland, wet meadow, scree and scrub.

There are outstanding views from the summit to the Lake District and Morecambe Bay.

The Lots in Silverdale is an area of easy-walking grassland in the middle of the village, which leads down to the shore at the Cove and has wonderful views over Morecambe Bay.

Jack Scout is one of only two cliffs in the area and provides a good breeding ground for song-birds as well as feeding places for weary migrant-birds passing through.
