Liverpool Brisk Walkers
Liverpool Brisk Walkers - The 'B' Side
All brisk walks will start at 1.30p.m. The starting point for the month is outside the Harvester Pub and Grill (The Otters Pool) at the bottom of Jericho Lane. Please note that the mileage stated for each walk is approximate.

Saturday 7th April: Denise's Walk (Peter's Version): Otterspool/Sudley Circular. 6 miles.

This walk includes the promenade path, public footpaths near Liverpool cricket ground, Sudley Park, and the wooded area off Mersey Road.

Saturday 14th April: Otterspool/Grassendale Circular. 3.5 miles.

The walk will include a section of Otterspool wood, paths near Liverpool Cricket Ground, the Mersey Road wood and the promenade.

Saturday 21st April: Otterspool/St. Michael's Circular (Longer version). 4.5 miles.

We head down the promenade path towards the city and, after a mile or less, we turn right and pass the former Garden Festival site on our left. A footpath brings us to a road but we turn left and walk a few yards so that we can use the pedestrian crossing which leads us to Priory Wood. Exiting, we are in the St Michaels area. We cross Aigburth Road at the bottom, pass the library and turn on to Livingstone Drive. At the junction we take the road on the right which is Livingstone Drive North and then cross Sefton Park near the cafe towards the far perimeter path before returning to Otterspool via the wood.

Saturday 28th April: Otterspool/Sefton Park/Greenbank/Priory Wood Circular. 6 miles.

We go from Otterspool through Otterspool wood, initially on the perimeter path, cross the central path near the railway bridge and then go up the steps to the other perimeter path before descending and exiting the wood near Aigburth Road. We then make our way to Sefton Park. From there we head for Greenbank, do a circular walk of that and then take a path across Sefton Park towards Lark Lane and the St.Michael's area. We go through Priory Wood and down to the promenade path which eventually takes us back to our starting point. There may well be a short section of this walk in Otterspool wood which is muddy and perhaps waterlogged.
