Mud bank at Cow's Mouth, Jack Scout
Cow's Mouth is a local name for the small, cliff-bound inlet below the National Trust reserve at Jack Scout. It is a significant break in a stretch of rocky coastline and may have got its name from cattle droving across the Kent estuary. At high tides the sea washes the foot of the crags (a pleasant rock climbing venue) and is thus sometimes referred to as Lancashire's only sea cliff. Wave action on the falling tide has sculpted small terraces into the mud and sand - every visit here presents a different view.
