Silverdale is a beautiful village within near the historic City of Lancaster, in roaming and green Lancashire. It stands on the border between Morecambe Bay and Cumbria.

This small village is a site of many interesting and amazing things. Including the Trobarrow quarry, which is now a hugely popular climbing location, and footpaths along the Lancashire and Cumbrian Coastal Way’s which go from Silverdale to Freckleton and Gretna respectively.
RSPB Leighton Moss Nature Reserve
For nature lovers the Leighton Moss Nature Reserve is a must-see location. It has been in the care of the RSPB since 1964 and it contains the largest area of reed beds in the whole of the north-west of England.
Many species of wildlife find a home here, including bitterns, red deer and countless species of birds. It is a designated Ramsar site since 1985 and it is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest and an Important Bird Area.
This small village has had some notable faces take up residence over the years. It was a favourite holiday spot of author Elizabeth Gaskell in the 19th
Poet Gordon Bottomley and author Willie Riley also lived in this picturesque village and drew inspiration from the surroundings for many years. More recently, comedian Victoria Wood was a resident of Silverdale and she sadly passed away this month.
This village may be small but it seems to draw and produce some amazing talent, no doubt for very good reason.
