The variation in the scenery along this circular walk is quite remarkable, from the great expanse of the Dee saltmarsh, to ancient tracks and woodlands, and the deep sandstone cutting of the old railway - a remnant of the industrial revolution now turned into the Wirral Way Country Park. For sheer variety and interest this walk is recommended for everyone, not least for the scandal at the Harp Inn, (see photo on the right), involving Admiral Nelson. (More details in Additional info below).

The walk will be good for teenagers, senior citizens and everyone in-between. Good for dogs but hopeless for wheelchairs & buggies. There are refreshments and toilets at two pubs along the route if they are open and bench seats scattered at a few places along the route. If the weather has recently be fine and dry suitable footwear will be anything, and stout trainers will be fine. However if it's been wet some sections may be very muddy and boots will be required.

We really enjoyed this walk today. The navigation is excellent. I would add though that there is a further stile not long after WM11 and it is an old style one which took a bit of managing with our large dogs. Also, for people with dogs, there was a notice about an irresponsible owner who did not keep their dog on a lead through this section and it didn't end happily. :( Please keep your pooches on a lead to keep sheep and your dogs safe.
