This is an almost level walk, mostly on gravelled tracks and based on the ancient village of Sefton, which was adopted as the name of the Metropolitan District. It passes through an area of former wasteland that was planted a few years back as part of the Mersey Forest. It has been an outstanding success in attracting wildlife - animals, insects and birds. These flat fields have long been the winter grounds for waders and geese, but other species can now be found here: five species of owls, kingfishers and the grasshopper warbler among them. The wide skyscapes more than compensate for the lack of viewpoints and are among the attractions of walking on these plains.
