Every tide forces debris onto the shore. At the last beach clean we collected 27 bags of rubbish plus large items such as a truck tyre and a twisted length of barbed wire fence.

This is a joint event with the Bowness on Solway Local Community Group. If we have enough people with enough energy, we will clean the beach and the salt-marsh as far as the car park at the west end of the village. There is no car park at the east end of Bowness, so drivers should park on the inland side of the coast road being careful not to block driveways.

This beach at the east end of the village is at the tip of a promontory which causes a narrow point in the Solway Firth.
