They say that Kent is the garden of England; however, this part of Merseyside and Lancashire comes very close. Walking through the fields at various times of the year the crops are constantly changing, with potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, swede and lettuce, to name a few, being grown.

There is also a range of birdlife, with birds of prey including honey buzzard, peregrine, sparrowhawk and kestrel in evidence in the area and walking down the coach road you have wildflowers such as rhododendrons and foxgloves on both sides of the track.

At the Siding Lane Nature Reserve there are varieties of wildflower, birds and wildlife complete with a fishing pond. There is also the beauty of the Inglenook Lavender Field in summer, plus the tea and cakes at the café. If that's not enough there is lavender produce and fresh vegetables for sale. What's more, Rainford has its own micro-brewery.

A nice lazy walk but scenery rather bland.
