There have been a number of guides over the years and they have all been very experienced in the workings and the dynamics of the bay. They have usually been from local fisherman stock and the present two incumbents are no different.


Cedric has been a guide since 1964 and guides parties over the Kent Estuary, between Arnside and Kents Bank. Cedric will guide large charity walks as well as smaller walks for organisations or groups. In 2019 Cedric handed over the title of the Queens Guide to Michael Wilson.


Michael is a local fisherman and works from Flookburgh. Michael has spent many years on the Sand with his Father, Grand Father and Great Father, what Michael doesn’t know isn’t worth knowing.


Raymond is a local fisherman and works from Canal Foot near Ulverston.  He has the responsibility for walks across the Leven Estuary and usually walks people from Canal Foot to Chapel Island and back.
