About 7500 years ago a series of sand bars appeared along the coast
off Formby Point. For 3000 years, animals, birds and people left their
tracks along the muddy shoreline. Some were baked hard by the sun,
each tide covering them with a thin layer of sand and silt. Then
about 4500 years ago the shoreline moved westwards, sealing in
everything. But now coastal erosion is uncovering our prehistoric
landscape and revealing those ancient imprints. These are the photos of the ones the discovered when we went on a visit to Formby beach.
