June 9th at 18:30 to June 12th at 13:30

Take a journey through time exploring the lesser-known inner Solway estuary coast of both Cumbria and Dumfries & Galloway. This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Special Area of Conservation with internationally important salt marshes, sand dunes and wetlands; it is also rich in history, local culture and stories. It is renowned for its archaeological heritage which includes the western end of Hadrian’s wall, medieval fortified buildings, forgotten harbours and WW2 airfields. This programme will involve fieldtrips and walks to various historic sites, picturesque harbour towns and nature reserves in this stunning corner of the world where England and Scotland meet. Each full day will include a lower-level Solway coastal walk of no more than five miles and some visits by minibus to different local heritage sites. Not suitable for dogs due to wildlife and possible grazing livestock.
