Just got back from 2 days at the Caravan club site in Thurstaston where I have been many times before. Its a cracking little site and the area is a jewel of Merseyside. Outside of the gates is "The Wirral Way" which is a developed Railway embankment that runs from West Kirby to Hooton - a distance of 12 miles. What a fabulous place! We took our bikes and cycled the first day from Thurstaston to Parkgate and had a home made ice cream and back again. That was a total of about 8 miles. Yesterday we went the other way and cycles to West Kirby and had a walk around.
Its abeautiful place and is well used by cyclists, horse riders, people with dogs, runners etc. There is a bird watch at Thurstaston where you can sit in the hide and watch all sorts of birds feeding.
Then you can walk on the shingle beach at the Deeside sailing club. Such a lovely area, I recommend it. Turn into the road opposite the Cottage Loaf pub, Telegraph Road, Heswall and follow it all the way down to the bottom.
