Overview

Discover the story behind Formby's famous asparagus with the Asparagus Trail.

From the 1800s local families worked to level areas of Formby's sand dunes specifically to grow asparagus and it has remained popular ever since.

The outdoor trail, which starts at Formby's National Trust site, is fun for all the family - even your four-legged furry friends.

On the trail you’ll see giant sculptures - including a larger than life Jimmy Lowe, who established his Pine Trees Farm at Victoria Road in 1925, by local sculptor Simon Archer - and an active asparagus farm, Sandfield Farm, where David Brooks still grows Formby asparagus in the traditional way.

The walk takes about an hour and 15 minutes and is just under three miles long. There’s also a shorter asparagus trail for children approximately 1.5 miles long.
