Oooh! Scorchio!

Silverglades – Putting nature back in naturism

With nature in mind, and to give members another excuse to visit, we are arranging some Nature events at Silverglades on the last Saturday of the month. Although these are intended to be held in our own grounds, we may venture (clothed!) further afield, for example onto the RSPB reserve. The remaining events are:

22/06/19 Watercolour Challenge. Painting flora and fauna [note date change – NOT the last Saturday]

27/07/19 Butterfly watch. Including the rare High Brown Fritillary

31/08/19 Geology and Limestone pavement. Do you know your clint from your grike?

28/09/19 Blackberrying. August to October is the best time to pick. Hedge your bets and pick in September

Open Day 8 June 2019

Morecambe Bay Naturist Club welcomes prospective members to our private grounds at Silverglades, free of charge, on 08/06/19. Just let us know you are coming via our  Contact Page    or  send an email to the Secretary
Silverglades is our idyllic site, close to the beautiful village of Silverdale about 10 miles north of Lancaster and close to Morecambe Bay. It is an ideal place to lie in the sun, or maybe walk along our woodland trails. There are ten acres of natural woodland, the largest clearing beside the clubhouse is partly set aside as a wild flower meadow but the main lawn may be used for socialising, picnics or barbecue. Or you can relax in one of the secluded  smaller clearings, where you may not see another person.  If you want to stay longer, we can accept tents and medium sized caravans or campers (due to mild access restrictions), but cannot provide electrical hookups or piped water/waste.

2018 AGM

Our Annual General Meeting will be at 2pm on Saturday 08/09/18 at Silverglades.

The AGM is quite short and not too formal, don’t be shy and please come along. To encourage members to attend, we will lay on sandwiches and snacks, so please let me know whether or not you can attend (

This is your opportunity to hear what the club has been up to, to elect the committee, and have your say on how the club is run, so it will be good to see as many of you there as possible.

If you would like to help out by being on the committee, we have at least one vacancy. Please contact me if you’d like to serve. Committee meetings are held at Silverglades on the second Saturday of the month from March to October

Hope to see you at the AGM!

Summer may be over

After the best summer since 1976, it looks like the fine weather may be over – we’ve had a fair few showers at Silverglades in the past two weeks, enough to lift the ban on open fires. But to be honest, the site needed the rain. Not only were the lawns parched but a few of the trees were showing signs of distress due to drought. Now, the grass is growing, the lawns are green again and the trees are recovering (apart form one or two – an oak adjacent to the short drive leading to the top lawn from the car park dropped a large branch last week in high winds, so I’d suggest cars should be parked away from this tree until it can be inspected.)

Please, no fires!!

Due to the very dry nature of the site: with immediate effect there is now a total ban at Silverglades of all fires even on recognised hearths, and all BBQ’s and any other forms of potential ignition. This includes the use of portable gas stoves for cooking (except within the club house), the use of the lawn mower and other power tools, and all smoking.

Although the forecast for later this week is for occasional showers, we need heavy rain before this ban can be lifted.

Thank you for your cooperation


Chairman MBNC

Another lovely day at Silverglades

Yet another lovely day at Silverglades, wall to wall sunshine yet again!

This year we’ve tried to keep more of the flowers by not cutting all the lawns and leaving the odd island. We’ve also left the far end of Top Lawn to “go to seed” to improve next year’s flower crop.

Lovely to walk through as these photos show
