Add Warton Crag to your Itinerary

Warton Crag
Warton Crag is a prominent limestone outcrop which stands sentinel over the village.

The limestone pavement is of a very high quality and of national importance. The weather in this part of the country, and the protection afforded by the trees and shrubs on the hillside, has created in the fissures of the pavement a micro-climate in which many species have flourished.

To the North West of the summit lie the remains of the Iron Age fortifications, the vantage point affording superb views North to the Cumbrian hills, East to the Pennines and South to the Lancashire plain. The paths to the summit are clearly marked, and there is a car park near Warton.

For more information contact the Arnside/Silverdale Countryside Management Project on (01524) 761034.
