Green Spaces of the Wirral Walk: 3rd October 2021
Join us for a varied and scenic exploration of the green spaces of northwest Wirral. This lovely 7 1/2 mile circuit features Victorian parks, hilltop viewpoints, autumnal forest colours – and a seaside stroll to finish.
The walk highlights the value of the green belt for Liverpool City Region and reminds us how precious parks, nature reserves and woodland are as breathing spaces for both residents and, indeed, the earth itself.
Participants will need to wear boots or good trainers and appropriate clothing (including waterproofs if necessary). Please also bring a packed lunch or a snack and a drink. We will break for lunch in Royden Park, where toilets and teas and coffees should also be available. At the end of the route, there will be optional drinks and chat at the Kirby Tap pub.
Leisurely – mainly well-made paths but a few ups and downs too, as well as some potentially slippery and muddy sections. We will keep at a manageable pace to suit all attendees
The walk can be accessed either by train or by car. Full joining instructions will be sent to those registering.
