Warton Crag

Warton Crag is a prominent limestone outcrop which stands sentinel over the village of Carnforth.

Rising dramatically above Morecambe Bay, Warton Crag marries stunning habitats that have seen the area become part of a network of nationally important wildlife conservation sites.

Limestone grassland, limestone pavement and ancient semi-natural woodland boast thin, free-draining soils and rugged, rocky outcrops that support an extra special array of species.

Bird’s-foot trefoil, horseshoe vetch and kidney vetch create a blaze of colour in May and June. The rich yellow hues of common rock rose and bright pink thyme come later.
