Safety advice 

Also very importantly advice for all our walkers for our Walk to Piel - stay safe and have fun! Piel Walk Safety tips please share!

  • Please register when you arrive

    • Please respect the area and be aware of the potential risks.
    • Follow all instructions and please stay with the group...
    • Be very careful at the start of the walk and take your time as it can be very slippery. Use a stick for added safety- if necessary. (limited supply of walking sticks will be available for purchase)
    • Wear appropriate footwear e.g. Wellingtons or Walking boots.Trainers are ok but will get wet and muddy and aren’t brilliant on slippery surfaces.
    • If you are experiencing any problems please ask for assistance (anyone in a yellow jacket or anyone from the inshore rescue team.)
    • Toilets and refreshments are available on Piel (we believe there is a Hog Roast on offer!!!)
    • Dogs can run freely on the sands (at owners risk) but need to be on leads on the Islands.
    • You will be given a verbal briefing and an air horn will sound when it is time to leave.
    • Parents are responsible for their children at all times.
    • Have fun and enjoy.
