Walk

Description

Grade: Easy Distance: 5km/3 miles Time: 2 hours Start: Old Baths car park, Parkgate Map: OS Explorer 266 Terrain: Generally flat along good surfaces (short grass over golf course). Barriers: 2 kissing gates, no stiles. Toilets: Several PHs and cafes along the way. Public toilets are also signed off the Parade. The town was once a bustling port, but the ships are now a distant memory. The silting of the river has left a rich marsh which, at high tides during the winter months, provides some of the most spectacular bird watching in the North West of England.
