North End Dunes

May 25, 2008 at 19:01 | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments


I’ve been out of town all day today, traipsing round the Westmorland Moors (is that a tautology?) So I’m afraid I haven’t got a fresh picture for you today. Instead, here’s a two-year-old shot taken at the North End of Walney a couple of years ago. The North End is covered with sand dunes with a scattering of ponds, and is a nature reserve as home to reptiles and amphibians, notably the Natterjack.

Incidentally, in case you were wondering, my definition of Barrow for the purpose of this blog is the old County Borough of Barrow, which included all of Walney but not Dalton, Askam and a rural hinterland currently included in the Borough of Barrow-in-Furness.

  1. I really like this image, but can’t help wonder why the need for the fence? Who are the keeping apart? Barrow and Workington fans? Montagues and the Capulets?

  2. Hinterlend eh?
