Seldom Seen MapsThe Seldom Seen™ Series of Maps: Morecambe Bay - Developed by Art Gene
Developed by Art Gene working closely with Morecambe Bay Partnership, together, these 5 maps span from the islands of Barrow to Cockerham; plotting the hidden assets of spectacular Morecambe Bay.

This series of illustrated maps details current and historic points of interest, including internationally significant nature reserves and places of more surprising ecological importance alongside sites of industrial endeavour – and key figures who have left their mark on the town and its islands.

By capturing each area’s remarkable natural history, industrial (and military) heritage and social history, the Seldom Seen™ Series of Maps reveals that places are never just one thing, but layers coexisting and connecting through time.

- The Islands of Barrow (2nd edition)
- Furness Peninsula
- Cartmel Peninsula
- Arnside – Silverdale Area
- Morecambe – Heysham Area

The Seldom Seen™ Series of Maps are available individually, or as a boxed edition of all 5, from Lancaster and Morecambe Visitor Information Centres.

The Seldom Seen™ Series of Maps are researched and designed by Stuart Bastik, director and co-founder of Art Gene, and are plumb full of the days spent backpacking and late nights of drawing which punctuated the years of research they took him to compile. Each of the 5 maps is the result of extensive consultation with hundreds of local residents and specialists through a participatory programme of road show events and expert-led guided walks, devised by Maddi Nicholson.

Many thanks are due to the Morecambe Bay community who shared the seldom seen gems of the places they live and love. Thanks also for the invaluable support from partner organisations: Cumbria Wildlife Trust, Arnside & Silverdale AONB, Natural England, RSPB, The National Trust and Morecambe Bay Partnership.
