Good Beach Guide results for North West England

The Marine Conservation Society has published its 25th Good Beach Guide. Eight North West beaches are recommended by MCS, which only recommends beaches which achieved ‘guideline’ water quality based on water quality testing which took place in 2011.

The 8 are: Cumbria: Silecroft and St Bees; Sefton: Formby and Southport; Wirral: Meols, Moreton, Wallasey and West Kirby. For more information on 56 North Westbeaches see the MCS website: and for bathing water profiles on the 31 North West coastal beaches designated as bathing beaches under the Bathing Water Directive see the Environment Agency website.  

MCS is also running a series of beach cleans on the Big Beach Clean-up weekend which runs 11th to 13th May. Events are taking place at 5 locations in the North West:  Harrington, Workington; Sandylands, Morecambe; Rossall, Cleveleys; Hightown, Sefton and West Kirby, Wirral.
