The Wirral Way is a path on the track of an old railway that goes from West Kirby to Hooton offering superb views over the Dee Estuary to Wales. The route leaves Neston through a long sandstone cutting and then continues across the tranquil rural farmland of Northern Cheshire. The route goes through Hadlow Road Station to Wirral Country Park.
Hadlow Road railway station was the location that some of my Civic Society members visited to listen to a talk by the local Friends group. The disused station is a Grade 11 listed site with a museum in the village of Willaston. The free museum is open to the public and contains many artefacts. There is also a small cafe on the platform.
For those who are not fit enough to walk long distance paths or cycle; there ia small free car park. A pleasant place to stop if you are touring rural Wirral.
