Hoof-prints

Lytham St Annes and Southport face each other just 5 miles across the Ribble Estuary – but, beware, you can’t get there on foot.

Away from the buzz of the seaside resorts an area of natural beauty and contrasting landscapes awaits exploration.

The receding tide reveals mudflats full of juicy worms and crustaceans, a vital food source for some 270,000 waders and wildfowl that visit each year.  Windswept dunes, home to abundant wildflowers, butterflies, moths, creepy crawlies too numerous to mention, and vast saltmarshes are wonderful places to search and discover.
