LIVERPOOL BRISK WALKERS: JULY 2017
All brisk walks will start at 1.30pm.
The starting point for the month is the Otters Pool Public House at the bottom of Jericho Lane.
Please note that the mileage stated for each walk is approximate.
Sat 1st July: Otterspool/St.Michaelís Circular (Shorter version). 3.5 miles.
First of all we go down to the prom, turn right and continue along the path for about 1.5 miles.
Then we turn right and head for the St.Michaelís area via Priory Wood.
Next our walk takes us over Aigburth Road via the library and we make for Livingstone Drive South.
From there itís into Sefton Park and we turn right taking the perimeter path to the boating lake car park.
We leave the park, take the underpass beneath Aigburth Road and go through Otterspool Wood back to our starting point.
Sat 8th July: Otterspool/Sefton Park/Greenbank Circular. 6 miles.
This walk includes complete circuits of the two parks and a journey through Otterspool Wood.
Sat 15th July: Jean's Walk: Otterspool/Britannia Inn Circular. 5.5 miles.
Plenty of sea air on this one as we go on the promenade path at both the beginning and the end of the walk.
Sat 22nd July: Anniversary Walk and Optional Pub Meal: Otterspool/Sefton Park/Princes Park/ Priory Wood Circular. 5 miles.
Whilst there is some pavement walking, much of the route goes through parks and woods so it is very pleasant.
We walk a short way along the promenade path as well.
It is now fourteen years since our first brisk walk and tomorrow (23rd July) would have been Dave Dent's 70th birthday.
Celebrate afterwards with a meal and drinks at the Otters Pool pub - no need to book.
Sat 29th July: Otterspool /Sefton Park/Greenbank/Priory Wood Circular. 6 miles.
Provided the path is not flooded we take a route from Otterspool through the wood and 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 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.
