Winter Walks: Nihal Arthanayake (S2EP4 BBC Four Thurs 2 Dec 2021)



Nihal Arthanayake: Nihal Arthanayake, broadcaster and radio DJ, explores the coast and countryside around the Cumbria and Lancashire border, and finds local characters, breathtaking views and moments of serenity along the way.

As a recent resident of the north west, Nihal is keen to discover what is on his doorstep. Starting in the coastal town of Arnside and looking out over the mudflats of Morecambe Bay, Nihal heads south with just his 360-degree camera for company.

The quiet and stillness of his walk gives him time to “declutter” his mind and reflect on the importance of solitude.

Along the way, Nihal passes Arnside Tower and crosses the border into Lancashire. Views from the top of Arnside Knott and from hidden coves on the Silverdale coast showcase the beauty of this corner of the country, and give Nihal fresh perspectives on his work and relationships.
