About MBNC

Founded in 1986, we are a small, friendly club with our own private grounds, only ten miles north of Lancaster and less than a mile from Morecambe Bay

We are situated in the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which is renowned for:

  • Outstanding landscapes and spectacular views
  • Unique limestone geology
  • Morecambe Bay – a stunning seascape
  • Rare and precious habitats
  • Internationally and nationally important species
  • A sense of tranquillity, space and place; and
  • A highly protected area for both landscape and nature

Morecambe Bay, less than a mile from Silverglades

Our site, ‘Silverglades’, occupies ten acres of sheltered south facing slopes, a spectacular mix of woodlands, glades, lawns and legally protected limestone pavements screened from the outside world. We are a short distance from the Leighton Hall estate, and next to th RSPB Leighton Moss  nature reserve.

By car or motorhome we are only 5 miles from J35 of the M6 (leave via the A 601(M) south slip road and travel through Carnforth/Millhead)

By train we are a short 10 minutes walk (or 20 minutes including the track to the

clubhouse!)from Silverdale station making a visit easy for naturists living on the Leeds – Morecambe line, the West Coast line, and the Cumbria Coast (Barrow) line. (If

travelling via Lancaster you may need to change for the Barrow line, Silverdale is 2 stations from Lancaster. If travelling from Barrow, Silverdale is 2 stations before Lancaster.)

There has never been a better time to try naturism. We know, all too well, that the pound in your pocket doesn’t go too far nowadays. We have kept our fees low, as usual this year, so it isn’t going to break the bank to visit Silverglades

If you are new to all this and perhaps just inquisitive at this stage, maybe wondering what on earth people see in naturism, check our About Naturism page

  1. Hello there, I’ve been thinking about joining a naturist club for years now.

    I’d like to join, so how do I go about doing that?
