Morecambe Bay Naturist Club (http://mbnc.org.uk) continues to welcome new members.
Our 10 acre site Silverglades, with its woods, wild flower meadow, small private glades and lawns, and main lawn for socialising, picnics or barbecue, is in the beautiful village of Silverdale, 10 miles north of Lancaster. An ideal place to lie in the sun, or maybe walk along our woodland trails.
Day visits (£5) by non-members are possible, but a full year at Silverglades for a couple/family is only £70 + £16 joining fee (£55 + £10 for singles), so membership is great value! Our next Open Days for prospective members are 16/03/19 and 13/04/19 when your first visit will be free (arrange via our Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org 07467 246690).
We accept tents and medium sized caravans or campers (sorry, no electrical hookups or piped water/waste).
MBNC – putting Nature back into Naturism!
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 (email@example.com)
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!

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.)
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
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

Morecambe Bay Naturist Club are hosting another open day at Silverglades from 10.00am on Sat 09th June 2018 (date confirmed). There will be no charge for the first 24 hours of your visit, if you’d like to stay longer you’ll only pay for the subsequent day(s)
If you wish to attend, please contact the club by email email@example.com or contact us on or SMS 07467 246690
Silverglades is ten minutes walk from Silverdale station on the Lancaster, Barrow, Carlisle line so is ideally situated for naturists without transport who live within striking distance of the Leeds – Morecambe and West coast lines (some journeys require a change at Lancaster)

Our facilities are few, just a small clubhouse , barbecue and picnic tables. The site requires self sufficiency from its members. There are clearings suitable for camping under canvas and up to medium sized caravans or campers, due to mild access restrictions, but cannot provide electrical hookups or piped water/waste. Perfect for a few days peace and quiet! What we have in plenty is tranquillity, and beautiful surroundings. The night sky, when clear, is amazing as we have little light pollution here.
