    It is but still in original condition. the original entrance to this is located just as you cross through the entrance on the rights as you enter the 'park', probably well overgrown now.

    Thanks Kat, here's the entrance to the park with the start of the 'slipway' visible on the right.

    Lovely Photo, Kev,
    I lived in cressington for a while so know the area reasonably well, I think its all a conservation area too.

    Here's a few more pics ->

    Another possible entrance to the 'beach' in bygone times when the area was clean.





    We used to climb over and slide down the side onto the rocks below when we were kids (about 10 years old).

    I think it's one of the old points of access to the Mersey in these parts before Grassendale Park came into being. It was probably built up a bit in order to manage the Mersey mud! Where the modern houses are now situated (on the Otterspool side) there used to be fabulous mansion houses that had their own drives leading to Beechwood Road.
