This looks fun...........

On Sunday 30th of November Pool presents Hunt Royale, an exploration of the historical boundaries of the Royal Park of Toxteth.
Pool has explored the Royal Hunting Park for a number of years, promoting a different vision of Liverpools history. With Hunt Royale we see a new and fun way of telling the citys story by running one of King Johns 13th Century Deer Hunts through 21st Century Toxteth.
Join the hunt and see who can bag the most of our herd of Oh Dear. Tackle the course by foot, bicycle or horse and carriage at the launch of a new programme of walks that ask you to solve clues in order to reveal the citys history.
The Royal Hunting Park is the area bounded historically by Upper Parliament Street, Smithdown Road, Ullet Road and along the Waterfront in the area now known as Sefton Street. Tackling this route today one might expect to find a concrete jungle but investigate further and you may get one or two surprises. . .
