Our Lady's Fellwalkers
We are a friendly walking group and everyone is welcome to join in.
Our walks are organised throughout the North West, including Yorkshire, Derbyshire, North Wales and the Lake District, generally keeping journey times to under 2 hours each way and with the objective of enjoying the fells and magnificent views they provide.
Our coach leaves from the corner of School Lane and Church Road, Formby, on the second Saturday of each month.
Prior booking is required. Please bring a packed lunch and wear weather appropriate outdoor clothing and boots. Hiking poles may also be handy if you have them.
See below for details of next walk and some previous.
Our walks this month are on the Wirral and are led by Mike and Teresa.
The A walk
is 9 miles and starts from Hoylake following the English Coastal Path along the west coast of the Wirral from Hoylake through Caldy and Heswall to the Cheshire village of Parkgate, with views over the Dee Estuary. The coffee stop will be at the start in Popseys Coffee Shop on Hoylake Parade which is currently only accepting cash.
The B walk
is 7 miles and starts in the Wirral Country Park from Eastern Rake Station along paths beside the railway and then follows part of the Wirral Way also ending in Parkgate. The coffee stop for the B walk is at The Station Masters House Cafe, Hadlow Station in Willaston, which means this group will have the opportunity to work up an appetite as the cafe is three miles into the walk.
Both walks are linear and fairly flat - no climbs just slight gradients. The B walk will be dropped off first and then the A walk, and our venue post walk is The Old Quay Pub and Restaurant, where a room has been reserved.
