Please note we are not running the Trail’s own shuttle bus this year. However, Silverdale has its own shuttle bus service, hop aboard if you want a rest. (charges apply)

The new timetable can be found here.


The village centre may be busy and become congested making parking difficult.

The footpaths marked on the map are to help you get around on foot. Please take care when walking on the roads, which can be narrow and busy, and keep well into the sides.

We Suggest

Park at Eaves Wood, walk up through car park and turn left in the woods for Village.

After 10 minutes, take junction left down to Park Rd, near Methodist Church.

Alternatively, next left, near the seat takes you to Cove Road. It is best to avoid walking on Park Road, due to traffic and lack of footpath.

From Eaves Wood you can also walk along The Row, and take footpath right towards the village across fields, coming out near St John’s Church.

From RSPB you can take the fairway path to The Row, turn right and then take footpath left across the fields to the Church. ( approx 25 minutes)

From Car Park at Gibraltar Farm (near Wolf House) a 10 minute walk will bring you to Shore Road, and right up in to the Village.

Park on the seashore – check the tides

A 5 minute walk will bring you to the centre of the village passing Silverdale Hotel on Shore Road and a 10 minute walk will take you to the venues at the end of Lindeth Road.

The seashore to the Methodist Church at the opposite end of the village, via Emesgate Lane, is approximately 25 minutes.

Silverdale Institute –  Music venue
There is only space for disabled parking at this venue.

The easiest access is via the footpath from Emesgate Lane or to walk down Spring Bank from Stankelt Road.
