    Default Formby

    1st time I went to Formby last night at Sunset and loved the beach and scenery.

    Was going to take more shots of the area but spent too long walking on the beach near the tides and I planned at the last minute to go there.Takes nearly half an hour by train too from St Michael's station In Aigburth, which was good since I only have to go through Sefton Park and lark lane to get there.

    If the day stays nice today and has enough clouds, I'm going again today.

    If I ever lived In the North then Formby Is where I would live.

    One shot I took at the beach at Sunset.



    The Sandhills were very soft to walk on that I sunk Into alot of sand too and the winds were strong enough to blow whats left of hair making It sticky up and full of sand.

    The Renaissance dude on flickr has brilliant shots of Formby Beach too.

    Max, you should be tagged and not allowed out of South Liverpool.

    For my sins, I don't think I've ever been to Formby. How bad is that?

    I know someone else who said they hated living in Formby too.
    Also, someone who detested living in Burscough. They couldn't wait to move away from there.

    yet I have a relative who has lived in 3 different houses in Burscough and is ok there.

    As nice as these places are, I'm not sure I would want to live there.

    High Town is another place. Some afluent houses there and lovely roads - but I've been told it is very uneventful and dull to live there.
    There is only one way in and one way out of Hightown - is that right ?

    I've only had passing visits for shopping not much else. My cousins go camping there a lot and scattered their mum's ashes there.

    It's only half an hour away by bus for me, so I guess I should give it a proper view sometime.

    there are fab sunsets off our coast and that is quite lovely young sir

    I was always impressed with how clean and tidy Formby was. I havent been there for a few years. It does seem a bit isolated but it does have everything.

    All the north west coast line has good areas as long as you don`t leave the sand and sea part.

    Once sunset is over the woods bit gets really dark when you walk back through it to the train station or car. Dead spooky!

    Yes thats right Lindy , just the one way in and out of Hightown , although i think theres a foot path that leads to Formby from there ! Formby is a town lacking in personality , and i have lived here for thirteen years !' A Town called Malice springs to mind !'

    Go up that way quite a lot. Seems okay. Couple of pubs there are ok, or used to be. Not had a drink there for a while now. Been to the rifle range there a few times.
