Upton Strollers

Updated: - 13th July 2018

Short Countryside Walks. Thanks to everyone who came on my last walk. The next circular walk will be held on Sunday morning 22nd July. Make a note of the date on your calendar now. The walk will be at a slow pace, three miles long, and will be very interesting especially with the friendly company. It will suit all ages of beginners or experienced walkers so you are welcome to come along and join in and you can bring a friend too. It should be good fun and an excellent chance for you to chat and make new friends and at the same time enjoy the beautiful scenery all around.

It will also be good for friendly dogs; and the kissing gates are now extra-wide and suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. There are no stiles, and the going over the golf course will be an interesting challenge for buggies and wheelchairs. All of the other paths are hard and excellent so good trainers will make fine footwear. Half way through the walk we will stop for 'bring your own' refreshments.

We will start from the Rivacre Valley Country Park free car park. Arrive at 10.00 am for a 10.15 start. The address is: - Poole Hall Lane, off Rivacre Road, Ellesmere Port, Wirral, Cheshire. For Satnav’s use the post code CH66 1SS or co-ordinates: 53.29281, 002.92598 It’s located just off junction 7 of the M53. Just turn up at the start, find the damson Toyota, and introduce yourself.

Easy walks three to five miles long are offered at a slow walking speed, often through spectacular countryside, with breaks taken when needed. Good for beginners of all ages and experienced walkers are also welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The walks are normally circular and within twenty miles of Chester. Travel to the start of each walk is by car - and lifts are usually available. We normally meet monthly on a Sunday morning and some of the walks finish with an optional pub lunch.

Many routes are suitable for all the family, often including your dog. There will be a short break for ‘bring your own’ refreshments. You will also need to bring waterproofs if there may be showers, and for some walks boots will be needed. WalkingWorld members, Nextdoor members, Chester residents, and anyone who Googled us are welcome to join our walks. If you have any questions please ask using the link under the photo, and if you‘ll be coming along for the first time you’ll be especially welcome and we look forwards very much to meeting you. If you want a lift please ask.
