Solway Coast: Britain's Heritage Coast


The name Solway - path of the sun speaks for itself. At certain times, the sea in the Solway Firth resembles a sheet of shimmering gold, a phenomenon that has given rise to many legends. This most beautiful and dangerous of seas has a tidal average of 30 feet that can reach 25-30 miles per hour, the average speed of a galloping horse. Evidence of the sea s power has been well documented, and in the 1700s an entire town was washed away into the Solway during a single storm. The Solway lies at the heart of the old Northern Lands, and around its shores there is evidence of occupation and industry from prehistory up to the present day. Starting in St Bees, on the English side of the Solway, H. C. Ivison takes the reader on a tour of this fascinating coastline, all the way to the horn of Whithorn on the Scots side. Themes covered include history, folklore, flora and fauna, saints, rivers, fishing, ports, lifeboats, famous visitors including Dickens and many more.
