The walk starts from the council's car park at Formby Point, goes through the dunes, along the coast and back through an area once used for growing asparagus. It passes a man-made lake which recently had ten different bird species on it, including tufted duck and little grebe.

Leave the car park and go inland through the edge of the woods parallel to the road access. By the Country Club turn right on a rough tarmac road and follow this as it swings to the right and passes some isolated houses. The last house, a large Victorian pile, is right behind the dunes. 

Cross and drop to the beach where you turn right and go north until a wooden ramp and boardwalk lead to the former cultivated areas. Good tracks lead past the lake, where as many as twelve bird species have been seen; and to more of the old asparagus fields to the car park. Use as your guide the high triangular shipping marker rising above the dunes.

Went on this walk today and it was really pleasant along the beach. For anyone that wanting to use a route finder/sat nav the street name is Lifeboat Road. Also if you park at the top of this street it is free and you can start the walk from there, part 6. Enjoy X
