A few weekends ago we were officially allowed to travel to exercise and we chose to go 5 miles up the road to the Wirral Country Park at Thurstaston. We went early to beat the crowds and it turned out to be the right decision as the car park was full when we got back at 10.45am.
After a short walk through the woods and along the cliff top you reach the Tinker's Dell steps down to the beach. Going down gives you a great view of the Welsh hills on the other side of the River Dee.
The beach had a few dog walkers on it but for the most part was empty.
Off the beach, the main route back to the car park is along the old railway line. The line originally ran from West Kirby to Hooton near Ellesmere Port but closed in 1956. The walk is approximately 13 miles each way.
We didn't walk the whole thing!
