Wyre is home to some of the most beautiful countryside in Lancashire. From the breath taking fell of Nicky Nook to the vibrant and varied wildlife of Wyre Estuary Country Park, our great outdoors are the perfect places to enjoy walking, cycling, bird watching, or even just taking in the spectacular views.
The landscape of Wyre is dominated by the fantastic River Wyre, the only major Lancashire river that flows from source to sea within the boundary of Lancashire county. This river cuts a winding path through the blanket of green spaces, bustling towns and quaint villages before opening into the Irish Sea.
With a diverse range of landscapes, from moors and peat bogs to woodland and wildflower meadows, Wyre’s countryside supports a rich variety of animal and plant life. Nature enthusiasts will find that Wyre’s great outdoors are a haven of flora and fauna and bird enthusiasts will not need to look far to spot native and visiting bird life.
Thanks to our location between beautiful coast and countryside in Lancashire, Wyre offers a huge variety of walking opportunities, from coastal dunes to wild upland moors, riverside trails to quiet country villages.
