Liverpool Brisk Walkers
Liverpool Brisk Walkers - The 'B' Side
All brisk walks will start at 1.30pm. The starting point for the month is the Mansion House, Calderstones Park. Please note that the mileage stated for each walk is approximate.

Sat 4th November: Black Wood/Childwall Woods Circular. 3.5 miles.

One of the shortest walks done by the group but usually very popular. We head up Druids Cross Road to the Black Wood, go down one side of that and reach Childwall Woods by crossing Woolton Road. Within Childwall Woods we take the perimeter path on the left and a do a complete clockwise circuit. Exiting the woods the way we came in, we cross Woolton Road and re-enter the Black Wood. This time we do a three quarter circuit of the wood in a clockwise direction emerging at the exit by the junction of Aldbourne Avenue and Druids Cross Road. We go down the latter, cross Menlove Avenue and return to our starting point.

Sat 11th November: Allerton Cemetery Walk. 6 miles.

This walk includes the golf course, Brunt Lane and a section of the cemetery.

Sat 18th November: Calderstones/Woolton Village/Camp Hill Circular. 5 miles.

Most of the paths will be familiar to regular Saturday walkers who have done the Cross Country March on several occasions. However, the main difference with this walk is that we do it in the reverse direction which means that we go down Camp Hill rather than up it. On a clear day this will give us good views. It will also demonstrate that walks often look quite different when done "in reverse". After coming down the hill we cross the main road, take the footpath by the side of the cemetery and then the lane by the side of the crematorium. In due course pleasant footpaths and lanes take us to Allerton Park Golf Course which we cross with care using the public footpath. After that, partially-wooded paths take us back to Calderstones.

Sat 25th November: Reynolds Park Circular and Optional Pub Carvery Meal. 4 miles.

This includes a partial circuit of the Black Wood, a full circuit of Reynolds Park and a whistle-stop tour of the walled garden. The meal will be immediately after the walk at the Greenhills pub on Greenhill Road, Mossley Hill, L18 7HN. The cost of the traditional carvery is 6.29. Starters, pizzas, desserts and vegetarian options also available. A range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks can be bought. No need to book. Note : this is now a Stonehouse Restaurant and, it seems, does not sell cask ale. Full details can be viewed at
