Barrow’s Beautiful Places
10am -3pm, Ante Room
Barrow’s Beautiful Places is back, bigger and better.
With Easter just around the corner it’s the perfect time to find out what you can do to make the most of the number 1 borough in the country for quality of landscape and natural heritage (that’s Barrow borough, in case you didn’t know).
Discover the best walks, the prettiest picnic spots, the finest views, the rarest wildlife and the most fun activities. Find out where it is, what it will cost (how little will surprise you) and how to get there.
You can also find out what these places were like in the past from Cumbria County Council archivists, what’s under the ground and how it has shaped the landscape from the geologists of Cumbria GeoConservation while wardens from Barrow Borough’s nationally important nature reserves will tell you about the rare and remarkable species which make their home in the borough – grey seals, the Natterjack toad, the Walney geranium.
Get the information to get more from your trip to Furness Abbey, Barrow Park and the Dock Museum.
Find out how getting out in these beautiful places can improve your mental and physical health, and what you can do if you want to help look after them.
There will be lots of fun things to do to help you get to know about the wildlife and stories of your area.
Whether you are a local born and bred, a newcomer to the area or just passing through there will be lots to interest you at the Barrow’s Beautiful Places event.
