The Venus & Cupid Arts Trust is organising a Cross Bay Walk on Sunday 12 May 2019, to raise funds to pay for the on-going repairs to the Sculpture.

See below for how to book

The walk starts at 11.15 am at Arnside Promenade, crossing the sands to Kent’s Bank, 2 miles west of Grange-over-Sands.  It is about 8-10 miles long and generally takes about 4 hours.  Most of the terrain is sandy, but there are soft, muddy spots, and one or two of the main channels can be up to thigh-deep in water.

The basic charge is £12 per adult, £9 for children 16-17, £7 for children under 16 years. *

Discounts for parties of three or more people, all booked and paid for as a single party:

Adult: £10.     16-17 years: £7.   Child (1-15): £5. (max. 2 children under 16 per adult, see note below *)


There will be a coach back to Arnside, leaving Kent’s Bank once the whole group has arrived.  Cost: £5 per seat, all ages.

Space will be limited to just over 50 walkers.  (The rail service from Kent’s Bank to Arnside has a limited capacity and should not be depended upon for the return journey – see note below †).

Registration will take place between 10.00 and 11.00 am on Arnside Promenade, so that the walk can begin promptly at 11.15.  Precise details will be published in early May.



*  The organisers stipulate that “the walk is notsuitable for children under eleven years old unless they are used to reasonably strenuous walks”.  They add that under 16’s should be accompanied by a responsible adult.  In this respect we ask that there be at least one adult for every two children in each party, as there are potential dangers if children should stray from the specified route.

†  Sunday trains depart Kent’s Bank at 15.15 and 16.20 for Arnside, Silverdale, Carnforth and Lancaster.

Unfortunately the earliest Sunday morning service to Arnside does not arrive until too late for the walk.  If there is sufficient demand, however, we may be able to organise outward transport from Morecambe to Arnside:  please let us know whether you would be interested, when you make your booking.
