An easy circular walk of just over 3 miles in Merseyside on mostly level ground, paths, tracks, fields and some roads. You can expect 3 kissing gates, 1 easy stile and 4 lift and replace gates. One field occasionally has horses grazing where a dog would need to be closely controlled. You may see Red Kites, Woodpeckers and a great variety of other birds, insects and mammals. Allow 1.5 hours.

Royden Park car park is off Hillbark Road, Frankby. In March 2019 costs were £2 for all day. Nearest postcode CH48 1NP.

At the end of Frankby Stiles, in front of a field gate, turn left on a narrow path and then turn right over a bridge. Keep to the left-hand side of the field, pass through a kissing gate and then bear diagonally right towards a house, nearly hidden by conifers. Go through a kissing gate onto China Farm Lane and turn right. At the T-junction with Saughall Massie Road turn right and, about 20 metres past Newton Hall Farm, turn right through a lift-and-replace gate. The footpath, a bit overgrown in places, bends left and then right and past a pond. After crossing a field, pass a wooden barrier to reach a T-junction of footpaths.
