Formby Coastal Heritage workshop.

The second workshop that I joined alongside the Atkinson 'Chorus of the Coast' Project was the trip with Formby High school pupils with Danielle Clark of the Atkinson, Eve Harrison, composer and John Dempsey, wildlife expert.
The walk lead us through pine-woods, sand dunes and onto the beach where we encountered ancient foot prints of red deer, and hoofed creatures such as large cattle. it is also reported that wolves were common inhabitants of the coastal area up to 10,000 years ago.
We also noted a variety of plants, such as rose bay willow herb, evening primrose and a large selection of discarded Christmas trees that have been gathered to help form a barrier against the tide.
