LIVERPOOL BRISK WALKERS: AUGUST 2017
All brisk walks will start at 1.30p.m.
The starting point for the month is the Mansion House, Calderstones Park.
Please note that the mileage stated for each walk is approximate.
Sat 5th August: The Bishop's Walk. 4 miles.
Allerton Park Golf Course, Ronnie's Path, Woolton Quarry, Reynolds Park.
Go to the Yewtree Road exit, pond on left. Cross Yewtree Road, Club house, Menlove Avenue, Ronnie's Path, tower blocks, curious glass structure.
Turn right, cross Vale Road and up Gladstone Street.
Turn right at Quarry Road, reaching Mill Stile public FP on left.
At Church Road go left, entrance to Reynolds Park on right.
Complete circuit around the park anti-clockwise direction.
Turn right along Church Road until the junction of Woolton Hill Road and Beaconsfield Road is reached.
We go down the latter road, cross over Menlove Avenue on to Yewtree Road and some way on our right is the entrance to Calderstones and the path back to our starting point.
Sat 12th August: 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 the left side of that and reach Childwall Woods by crossing Woolton Road.
Within Childwall Woods we take the perimeter path on the left and 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 19th August: 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".
Sat 26th August: Voyage of Discovery. 6.5 miles.
Wood, Gateacre, Loopline, Childwall Fields, Childwall Woods, Black Wood.
