This circular walk starts through delightful quiet wild woodland then through a popular wood well managed by the Woodland Trust, (See photo on right). At the start of the track through it take time to read the interesting information boards about its history, which for centuries included a busy quarry. You can see the distinctive white sandstone throughout your walk in walls and buildings and it was used for the construction of Birkenhead Town Hall. Having wandered through the wood we will continue down quiet and short rural lanes and across some meadows. One meadow is full of friendly horses - some wanting a pat; and another may occasionally have elderly cows. You can pause and have a look round Storeton village if you wish. Finally gently uphill along more short lanes and pleasant meadows back to the start. This is a more rural alternative to walk 3475.

The walk is suitable for children, senior citizens and everyone in- between. Stout trainers will be fine in good weather but wear boots in winter and after wet weather as some paths may be muddy. The kissing gates are in good order but large dogs may need lifting over some styles; and the route is not good for wheelchairs or buggies. There are refreshments and toilets at the 'Traveller’s Rest' pub near the start of the walk. There are no picnic tables, bench seats or toilets on the route.
