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 the Miller & Carter Bar and Grill (used to be The Otters Pool) at the bottom of Jericho Lane. Please note that the mileage stated for each walk is approximate.

Saturday 5th October: Otterspool/Sefton Park/Greenbank/Priory Wood Circular. 6 miles.

We go from Otterspool through the 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.

Saturday 12th October: 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 19th October: 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 26th October: Otterspool/Priory Wood/Princes Park/Sefton Park Circular. 5 miles.

We walk along the promenade to the St.Michaels area and then head towards Priory Wood. After exiting the wood we are near the railway station. There is then a fairly short section of town walking which leads us to the busy junction of Ullet Road and Aigburth Road. Crossing over to Belvidere Road we go into Princes Park. We then go across the park and exit near to Windermere Terrace which we go down and then turn right towards Ullet Road which we cross with care. Entering Sefton Park we go past the monument and head towards the café. From there we take the path by the side of the lake and continue until we reach the car park. After that we cross over the busy road towards Aigburth Vale and then go through the underpass beneath Aigburth Road. We emerge near traffic lights and cross over into Otterspool wood. This emerges on to a grassed area and a path which first loops to the left and then right before taking us back to our starting point.
