Open Day for visitors: 10:00 to 22:00, Sat 10th June 2023

Morecambe Bay Naturist Club hosts an annual Open Day at Silverglades in the summer; this year it will be on Sat 10/06/23.  (More details here) If you have not been to Silverglades before it will be free, and if you’d like to stay longer we’ll only ask for a donation if you are camping or returning the next day. Note that pre-booking is required, see above.

We don’t publish the exact location, but 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 or West coast lines (some journeys require a change at Lancaster)

Plan your journey by train at

When you contact us, we will give you full directions to our gate where we will meet you.

Our facilities are few, just a small clubhouse, barbecue and picnic tables (so, no electrical hookups or piped water/waste). What we do have however is  10 acres of woodlands and glades with an abundance of nature

For those who wish to stay more than a day, there are clearings suitable for either camping under canvas or for small-medium sized caravans or campers. (Due sharp bend in our access track, contact us for advice if you have a large caravan or camper).

Perfect for a few days peace and quiet in tranquil and beautiful surroundings. The night sky, when clear, is amazing as we have little light pollution here.

Can’t make the Open Day? Attending another time as a non-member

Please note that we will need a few days notice of your intended visit.

MBNC is a membership club so non-members must be accompanied at Silverglades by one of our members at all times; this is a condition of our site licence.  Non-members may attend Silverglades a maximum of any 3 days. However, we encourage you to apply for membership after your first visit.

We have members who live close to Silverglades who will be pleased to meet you on site, given sufficient notice of your visit. It’s a good idea to check the weather forecast first, as members are less likely to turn out when rain is forecast.

Note that pre-booking is required, see top of page.

Guidelines for Members and Visitors

Everyone attending Silverglades must bring their own water and be prepared to be self-sufficient on site. Note that unless there is a club member present there will be no access to the club house.

Please take litter and rubbish home, leaving the site clean and free from debris.

Whilst on the site, remain tidy and be considerate to other users


Silverglades is a “wildlife-friendly” site so please only bring pets that won’t disturb the local wildlife. Generally we love dogs, but we have Roe Deer in our grounds so dogs must remain under control at all times and not disturb other site users. Please scoop any poop and take it with you.


We allow smoking outdoors at Silverglades unless the ground is baked dry. Please use an ashtray as large parts of the site will be a fire risk in dry weather.

The clubhouse is a no-smoking area.
