I began my walk from West Kirby Station and made my way up to Caldy Hill, where there is a huge shipping beacon and not far away, a viewfinder. From here woodland paths wound down to farmland and then to the National Trust's Thurstaston Hill with wide-ranging views across the Dee to North Wales. Field paths led to the Dungeon with its caves and waterfalls and then the Wirral Way which runs along the bed of a disused railway. When the tide is out you can do as I did and walk along the edge of the Dee estuary, rich with waders, until you have to go up again to the Wirral Way.

Did this walk on 27/1/2012.Although most of the instructions are pretty good, we had problems finding waymarks 7/8. We checked position using GPS. Grid references all along the walk are totally wrong. This we know because we had 2 GPS's which both tallied, yet did not agree with walk figures. Suggest this walk be re-walked and checked.
