Wirral Way

This is a terrific walk or cycle ride that runs along a pleasant traffic free path through the Wirral Countryside and along the coast. It follows the track bed of part of the former Birkenhead Railway route from Hooton to West Kirby
You start off at Hooton Railway Station near Ellesemere Port and head towards Neston entering the lovely Wirral Country Park on the way. The path then heads along the beautiful Wirral coastline passing Heswall and Thurstaston before finishing at West Kirby.
