Saturday 7th July: 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.

First of all we go down to the prom, turn right and continue along the path for about a mile. 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.

Plenty of sea air on this one as we go on the promenade path at the beginning of the walk and, this time, towards the end, we will go on a softer path above and mainly parallel to the prom on our way back to the start.

It is now fifteen years since our first brisk walk. If you wish, celebrate after the walk with a meal in the Britannia Inn, Riverside Drive, L3 4AZ .
