Myers Farm,


Leighton Moss is a popular nature reserve in the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is the largest reedbed in north-west England, with lots of special birds and spectacular wildlife.
In our visitor centre our staff and volunteers are happy to help you find out more about nature. We have an information area with news of 'what's about' the nature reserve and details of upcoming events. We are also pleased to give you advice on how to look after birds and encourage wildlife to your garden.

During your visit you can enjoy a walk along our nature trails, look round our superb RSPB shop and enjoy a home-made meal in our cafe. All our profits help help nature too!
