A longer walk

Format: Throughout the Summer there are 2 walks each month. There is a morning walk on the first Tuesday of the month and a whole day walk on the 3rd Wednesday of the month.

The Tuesday walks are 3-4 miles in length and are usually no more than ½ hours drive away. Footpaths are used and they may be muddy, boots are advisable. The whole day walks go further afield and are often hilly.

The Tuesday walks continue throughout the year, however the whole day walks only take place between March and October.


Arrow Country Park

“11 members of the Walking group had a meander around Arrowe Country Park in March. Following weeks of rainy weather the route was rather watery and changes to the intended route had to be made to ensure everyone’s safety. The history regarding the uses of the old Manor House, the size of the Park and the venue of the Scout jamboree enlightened the group.

For some this was a new area they had not been to before but everyone agreed it would be worth repeating the walk during late spring or summer. So that’s one month’s walk sorted for 2025!”
