About Formby

Formby is a town in Merseyside with a population of approximately 25,000. Formby is affluent and has Strong economic ties with nearby Liverpool to which it acts as a commuter town for some of its residents.

The greater area is a popular tourist destination during the summer months, with day trippers attracted to its beaches, sand dunes and wildlife. To the west of the town lie pinewoods and sand dunes. The whole of the coastline is managed as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) for its important wildlife reserves by Sefton Coast Partnership. The pine woods at Victoria Road have been established as a National Trust reserve for the red squirrel, listed on the endangered species list. Formby is one of several sites in Britain where the red squirrel can still be found although it is now being threatened by the grey squirrel.

Formby is home to RAF Woodvale, a small RAF station on the outskirts of the town. The airfield opened in 1941 and is an ex World War II fighter station with three active runways, the main runway being a mile in length. Today it is used by RAF for light aircraft and fighter training, as well as a few civilian aircraft.
