Amy Pennington, the Trust’s Fylde sand dunes officer, said: “Not only are the dunes vital for holding back the Irish Sea and drifting sand to protect properties from flooding and storm damage, they are habitats for some varied and rare wildlife. These walks will allow the Trust to share some of the secrets of the dunes.”

The walks will continue on Saturdays, October 22 and November 12 and selected winter dates until June.
