Up onto the sandstone ridge that is the spine of the Wirral Peninsula right in the middle of Birkenhead, with fine views on either side and plenty of history to consider. We will visit a kiddies' farm, a 3,000-year-old carving, a lighthouse some miles from the sea and an observatory which used to determine the time for the region. There's a windmill and some characteristic old red sandstone-inspired heathland. There is one steep climb, which can be avoided (see Waymark 3).
