The Gathering Tide: A Journey Around the Edgelands of Morecambe Bay

by Karen Lloyd - £12.99  Saraband (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781910192191 | ISBN 10: 1910192198

A personal journey around ‘nature’s amphitheatre’.
Embarking on a series of walks that take in beguiling landscapes and ever-changing seascapes, Karen Lloyd tells the compelling stories of the places, people, wildlife and history of Morecambe Bay. Along the way we meet the Queen’s Guide to the Sands, discover forgotten caves and islands that don’t exist, recall lives lost to the fast-swirling waters, and delight in the simple beauty of an oystercatcher winging its way across the ebbing tide.
As we walk with Karen, she explores her own memories of the bay, making an unwitting pilgrimage through her own past and present, as well as that of the bay. The result is a singular and thoroughly moving account of one of Britain’s most alluring coastal areas.
