Thread: sand works southport?

  1. #1

    Default sand works southport?

    Hi just wondering if anyone's had a bash at the sand works on the coast road? The guy at rc pitstop in burscough has sbugested it, reckons it to be worth a try.
    Also has anyone got a tag on a map as to where the "bowl" on formby beach is? Thanks

    Where about's is that mate? Is it at the far end of the coast road, away from where pleasure land used to be?

    Ye say your at the mini roundabout underneath promenade the old fairground is on your left, if you turn right its down that road on the left, apparently its closed down and gates are left open. worth a venture up one day this weekend I reckon

    Looks like it's worth investigating, more reason to get some sand paddles

    I went and had a look ny Baja wasnt running at the time my mates mcd was he liked it but i thought there was too many random things poking out the ground could make a mess of a nice Baja if hit at speed, was only there for 20 mins or so and stayed in one spot as there was some local scallys there on what looked like a robbed ped..Will go and look closer prob this weekend.

    Hey guys... I'm very interested in where about the formby dunes are??. Me and a mate went there Sunday just gone and we had a little look round and went back to the car to take his 5sc out, when a woman in a Sefton county council jacket pulled up and asked us where taking the 5sc, to which she said we can't use it on the dunes as they are protected!! And would require the land owners permission and we wouldn't get it!!.

    Look for Albert rd on the maps, you'll see a sandy part south of the road, 5 min work from where we park the cars..

    Matty's the 1 you want to PM with the Dunes, only been there once and followed another member, lots of threads on here with directions etc...we got stopped when near the dunes too but we said we were going on the beach and not in the dunes so we got the ok...

    The Bowl is South of Albert Road in Formby, look at Google maps and it'll give you some idea..

    Thanks guys, didn't want to annoy anyone but I'm really interested in the location because me and a mate would love to go up there... And just to let you guys know we said we would just goto the beach and she warned us away from there too


    I'm just waiting for my new baja to arrive and will hopefully be taking it out before the year is out.

    Thanks for your help
