Welcome to Tennant Across the Pond

Thanks for coming by--and welcome to Tennant Across the Pond, my online journal which will serve to update friends and family about my upcoming trips to Formby, U.K.

I will be in Formby twice in the next six months, serving with Formby Baptist Church. The dates for the trip are:

March 5-22 and May 16-July 12.

Where is This Place Anyway?

Here's a map that shows the general location of Formby.

For those of you interested in some facts about Formby, here are a few, courtesy of Wikipedia.

Population: 24, 996
Size: 7 sq. miles (17 sq. km)

Formby is populated with red squirrels, a rare breed protected by the government, and is also home to the natterjack toad.

Formby is only 1.5 feet above sea level at its lowest point; it is in a coastal region near the Irish Sea. Tall sand dunes separate Formby from the sea.
