Formby footprints

Formby Footprints 2016

Following our winter talk on the footprints, the society had an outing to Formby to discover them for ourselves. The weather was lovely (for a change) and we discovered 2 areas of exposed mud layers just North of the Nationasl Trust, Victoria road car park.

There were many distinct prints, deeply incised into the very solid clay, including many human trails, hoofed animals, auroch and bird prints.
