Photographer's Note

Formby in Sefton has a significant tourist industry most notably between the warmer months of May and September. In particular its popular with day trippers from Liverpool and other industrial towns in Merseyside and West Lancashire. There are two main spots along the Formby Coast which are particularly popular with the public.

The Lifeboat Road site is about 1 miles from the town centre; there are three linked unpaved car parks with several routes cascading out in to the sand dunes and woods. The car parks are about 900 yards from the beach. Victoria Road is north of Lifeboat road and is busier due to the Red Squirrel reserve being here. From the junction of Larkhill Lane and Victoria Road is were the reserve begins and there is a charge to park from this point onwards. Parking is available adjacent to the reserve and at the end of the road there is a large unpaved car park for easier beach access, the beach from the car park is about 100 yards. The forest has some of the most unsual green colors of the trees and maybe it was just the evening light, but it was beautiful.
