Until 1974, Formby was an urban district (Formby Urban District) within the administrative county of Lancashire.Tradition says that the Viking invaders failed to defeat the native Anglo-Saxons on the coast of Formby, so they sailed inland, up the River Alt, and attacked from the rear.Dangus Lane, on the east side of the village, is sometimes called Danesgate Land, being connected by local traditions with this incursion.The town is 1.5 feet (0.5 metres) below sea level at its lowest point.Formby's highest point is within the sand dunes that separate the Irish Sea from Formby, sand dunes are ever changing in shape and formation so there is no fixed point.The River Alt runs into the Irish Sea just south of Formby at Hightown.The town is rurally landlocked; the land between Formby and the areas of Southport, Ormskirk and Liverpool is green belt land and is used for arable agricultural purposes.The greater area is a popular tourist destination during the summer months, with day trippers attracted to its beaches, sand dunes and wildlife - most particularly the endangered red squirrels and natterjack toads.Erosion of sand on the beach at Formby is revealing layers of mud and sediment, laid down in the late Mesolithic to the late Neolithic, approximately 8,000 – 5,000 years ago, and covered in the early Bronze Age.The MP for Crosby from 1997 until 2010 was Claire Curtis-Thomas, a member of the Labour Party, prior to her election the seat was generally considered to be a safe Conservative Party stronghold with Tory MPs elected at every election barring the Crosby by-election, 1981 where Shirley Williams of the Social Democratic Party was elected to represent the constituency.As a result of the Crosby constituency being abolished for the 2010 general election, Formby is part of the newly created Sefton Central constituency represented by Bill Esterson, a member of the Labour Party.
