Set in the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the station is just over one mile from the pleasant village of Silverdale and close to the RSPB Nature Reserve at Leighton Moss. Leighton Moss RSPB Nature Reserve is a haven for both local and migratory species with its lowland areas, wetlands, mosses and reed beds. Visitors come from across the UK to this highly regarded reserve which also boasts an impressive selection of plants and butterflies. The Visitor Centre houses a gift shop and a popular tea room.
Silverdale centre is connected to the station by a shuttle bus as well as by foot paths, one of which crosses the attractive Silverdale golf course. Other footpaths lead to the coast, Jenny Brown’s Point and through the woods and fields to Wolf House Gallery. The gallery is proud of its artist in residence and supports a cafe and high quality craft shop. From Wolfhouse, there are spectacular views across the water to Humphrey Head.
Take a walk up to the highest point of Eaves Wood to see The Pepperpot, a 20ft stone memorial built in 1887 to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. From this point you will get a fantastic panoramic view of the entire village and on a clear day you can see as far as Lancaster and even Blackpool Tower.
