West Kirby and Hilbre Island
Timing is crucial on this water themed walk from West Kirby to Hilbre Island as you are at the mercy of the Gods (or at least the tide timings).
Irby and Thurstaton
Start this month’s walk on Thingwall Road, heading off through Irby and skirting Thurstaston Common, eventually reaching Arrowe Country Park.
Our readers may be more familiar with the Manor and Hall of Thornton Hough, but this walk has a few hidden surprises.
