Follow the waymarked route from the car park and wander along wooded paths through dappled light and birdsong into a land of Narnia. Rustling leaves tell of deer, foxes, squirrels and hares watching but unseen. Continue through mossy limestone grottos, past a ruined cottage, the cathedral-like Beech Circle, majestic yews and reach your destination - the Pepperpot obelisk commanding its spectacular vista across Morecambe Bay and beyond to the Yorkshire Pennines and Cumbrian fells. Visit late on an autumn afternoon and you'll be rewarded with the best sunset in Britain. This is the magic of Eaves Wood, Silverdale. Later refresh with real ales and guest beers at the adjacent Woodlands Hotel – a gothic mansion redolent of the Adams Family, but that’s another story.
