The Duddon Estuary

On the Barrow Peninsula

The river Duddon follows the beautiful Duddon valley through Dunnerdale and meets the sea off the Barrow Peninsula becoming the Duddon Estuary. The railway meanders around this scenic stretch of coast, Kirkby-in-Furness station is just visible.

Wordsworth penned verse about this area, somewhat off the tourist track, just a few daffodils, solitude and a vast space full of birdsong.
