A very easy circular walk of about 2 miles on level ground around West Kirby in Merseyside. The walk includes part of the Wirral Way, a disused railway line plus, tides and weather permitting, a walk round the Marine Lake. There is only one kissing gate and one gradual slope up to Sandy Lane. Allow 1 to 1.5 hours.

There is a pay and display car park next to Morrison’s on Dee Lane in West Kirby. Nearest postcode CH48 0QA. The walk starts from this car park. If you are coming by train, the rail station is just a 3-minute walk from this starting point.

Leave the car park by the vehicle entrance and turn right up Dee Lane, passing Morrison’s on the right. At the end of Dee Lane you will reach a T-junction with the A540 Grange Road, with the rail station visible through the alleyway ahead.

At this T-junction turn right along Grange Road. Follow the pavement as it bends left, cross over three side roads and then, keeping right of the wide grass verge, you will find the entrance to The Wirral Way on your right, which is in Wirral Country Park.

Walk along The Wirral Way, passing Ashton Park and lake on the right. Continue ahead passing under two bridges. Just before the third bridge, turn right through a kissing gate and follow the footpath to the right round a brick building. Stay on the footpath as it bends left and gently rises to Sandy Lane. Carefully cross over and turn right towards the river until the sailing club is on the left and the sailing lake is in front of you.

At the promenade you have a choice. The most scenic option is to take the footpath ahead out towards the river and around the Marine Lake (on your right). At the end of this lakeside footpath go through the car park, turn left and then immediately right back to the car park at the start. However, if the tide is high the Marine Lake path may be under water. In this case you will need to turn right and walk along South Parade instead, keeping the lake on the left. You will come to the car park on the right where the walk began.
