5/ 5

A great view of the River Dee. From here, leave the beacon, facing away from the estuary, and take the first dirt path on the right. Walk through the brambles for roughly a quarter of a mile, ignoring the first path to the left. Take the second path left and that will take you to a better view at a little monument which has measuring distances to places like Anglesey, Liverpool, etc,. Continue in the same direction (i.e. with the river on your right) for half a mile. You eventually hit a major path. Take a right and walk until you reach a road. Cross it and continue on the path downhill. Hit a major road and take a right. Go past the church and follow the road around at the tight right angle corner. Cross over and take the path downhill to the left. At the end, when you reach another road, take a right and walk downhill. Go through a car park. Fairly quickly you'll see a sign on the left saying "Alternative route to West Kirby". Take this. You now approach Cubbins Green on the coast. Nice picnic area. You can then get on the beach, or join the Wirral Way to get to WK. Great walk. Enjoy.

5/ 5

A fantastic view overlooking West Kirby, River Dee and Wales. The Beacon stands on the site of an old mill and was used as a landmark by mariners navigating into the River Mersey. It was destroyed in a storm in 1839. The present 60ft (18m) column was erected in 1841 by the trustees of the Liverpool Docks by permission of the landowner John Shaw Leigh, who also gave the stone for its construction.
