Humphrey Head

Humphrey Head is a limestone outcrop situated south of the village of Allithwaite in Cumbria, England. It is whale-back-shaped and accessible for walkers, giving views over Morecambe Bay to Lancaster, Morecambe, Heysham and over the Leven estuary to Ulverston. There is an Ordnance Survey trig point at the top

Humphrey Head foreshore

You can walk through the lanes from Fell View or park by the RSPB Nature reserve on the lane not far from the foreshore itself.

From here, you have the choice of 2 walks. The first is going across the cattle grid and up the road to the RSPB reserve on your left. Follow the path to the fence right, into a large field. Keep the fence on your right and follow it up to the trig point on the top.

You can either retrace your steps or follow the fence towards the sea.

At the sea, go over the stile and turn left. Walk through the woods, (in May full of  bluebells,) keeping to the path. The path then climbs up, steeply in places and over a stile, and you are back on the RSPB reserve. Return down the drive.

Second walk :

 Park the car and walk  along the lane to the sea. At the forehore you can follow the path at the base of the cliffs with the cliffs on your left for as long as you want .

BEWARE of the tides! Morecambe bay has quick sand, do NOT venture out onto the marsh. Keep near the cliff and watch the tide.
