Starting at a point about halfway along Walk 2063, the walk explores the five original houses and cast-iron framed church of St Michael-in-the-Hamlet created by John Cragg around 1813. From there we progress along Lark Lane, the heart of a cosmopolitan area with a strong sense of community, then into Sefton Park with the famous Palm House. The original idea, as with neighbouring Prince's Park (also part of this walk), was to sell plots around the edge of the park to help fund the landscaping. This was only partly successful and so, along with many fine houses, there are areas now given over to allotments, where no wealthy Victorian could be persuaded to buy land.
