Climb Arnside Knott

A pretty little limestone hill, rising 500 feet above the northern end of Morecambe Bay, Arnside Knott is the crowning glory of the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is known for its wildlife, which thrives in the area limestone grassland and mixed woodland.

The Knott is - we are told - particularly appealing to insects and butterflies, such as the High Brown Fritillary and the Scotch Argus. Maintained by the National Trust, the hill can easily be tackled on a circular walk visiting the two villages of Arnside and Silverdale, taking in views towards the peaks of the Lake District from the top, seeing Arnside Tower and strolling along the shore.
