Wirralside Walkers up to 5 miles
White Top Walkers up to 8 miles
Mersey Riverbank and Festival Gardens
We have some photos to share from the Wirralside Walkers walk of 2019. The walk took place in Liverpool, starting from James Street Station and went along the Mersey River Bank to the location of the 1984 Festival Gardens. Thank you to Bill Dowling and Peter Freeman for providing the photos.
Bache to Chester
We have some photos to share from the last White Top Walkers excursion The walk took place between Bache and Chester, taking in the Wirral Canal and the Roodee Racecourse. Thank you to Bill Dowling and Peter Freeman for providing the photos.
We walked along country paths, through woods and over fields, taking in part of the Wirral Way as well as going through Cherry Wood.
Having met at Royden Park, the group went on a walk which took them across fields and through woodland.
Earlier this year, our group visited Eastham Village and Eastham Country Park, which included visiting the former site of the Pleasure Gardens.
White Top Walkers
Thanks you to Bill Dowling for providing the photos.
For their first walk of 2019 this group followed the River Dee Coast, covering fields and footpaths as they headed out to Oldfield Farm and on to Heswall Dales.
There were some fantastic views on the walk recently as the group ascended Moel Famau after starting in the village of Cilcain. Their descent took them by the Offa’s Dyke Path.
Moel Famau is a popular destination! Earlier in 2018 White Top Walkers took on another challenging walk, making for the summit, which incidentally is the Clwydian Ranges highest peak
Christleton and Chester Canal
White Top Walkers also had quite an adventure on an earlier walk! They began at Christleton and followed the Chester Canal out to Waverton, then took field paths to the Baker Way, which lead them back to Christleton.

Short Health Walks
We welcomed seven new walkers to our stroll along the Promenade at Hoylake and Meols and Queen’s Park.
We were in Hoylake again, close by Royal Liverpool Golf Club, for the first Short Health Walk for Carers and their Loved Ones, prior to their meal at The Green Lodge Hotel.
We usually meet at 10:45am for an 11:00am start and the walks will last one hour in total divided into three twenty minute routes.
