image spacer A residential suburb of Liverpool in the borough of Sefton, this one-time coastal Viking settlement now lies a mile from the sea where there is a superb, pine-fronted beach stretching almost nine miles northwards to the resort of Southport.

Three miles away, at Ainsdale, is a 400-acre nature reserve run by the National Trust - one of the last bastions of Britain’s population of rare red squirrels.
