Coastal Heritage

This section of the web site deals with human culture and its relationship to the Sefton Coast over the years. The earliest evidence of human activity on the coast dates back approximately 7000 years in the form of footprints left in mud and silt, which are now being revealed due to coastal erosion. From these early settlers the coast has seen the arrival of Vikings, the rise of the church, a variety of farming and land management techniques, the development of the coast as a tourist destination, through two World Wars right up to and including recent nature conservation concerns.
