This circular walk starts at the restored 1950's Hadlow Road railway station. Take time to explore it and you can look in the old signal box too, also the station toilets are fully operational. The walk proceeds through the delightful Willaston village to the north of it, and across the recreation fields. Then along a very rural lane to admire the old windmill, once the largest in the Wirral. (See photo on the right). There are full details about the mill and the station, in 'Additional info' below. The walk then proceeds along footpaths for some distance before turning south and joining another rural lane and eventually returning along the magnificent tree lined Wirral Way. The route is best walked in summer.

The walk is suitable for teenagers, senior citizens and everyone in-between. It's good for dogs but hopeless for wheelchairs or buggies. Suitable footwear would be anything stout and flat soled in summer, but in winter and after periods of rain the northern footpaths will be very boggy and boots will be needed. There is a picnic table and seats at the back of the old station, but no other seats on this walk. However there are more toilets at the Nags Head Pub in Willaston and you can purchase light snacks at Martins grocery or the Spar, and there is a café almost next door.
