This walk, which was opened in 2015 at Formby Point by the National Trust, offers an insight into the traditional farming of asparagus in the dunes. A surfaced track leads from one information point to another and is ideal for buggies or wheelchairs as the inclines are very slight. I found the suggested sequence for following it somewhat illogical and it also includes one misleading waymarker, so I made my own way round. Children seemed to love the various wooden carvings and the two audio points; the walk will take much longer if you read all the information available.
