We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Any decision to walk the Hoylake to Wallasey route should consider the most reliable way to reach the start. My wife and I arrived at a bus stop in Hoylake to travel to the Wallasey startpoint only to find the bus mentioned on the Internet timetable does not run from the indicated place. Any disappointment was diluted by walking to the midpoint and then (amazingly) walking back! A lot better than nothing. Great path, excellent views and perfect weather.

A very good coastal route, accessible to all. Only blown sand in a couple of sections may impede wheeled users, but they are easily bypassed. Paved roads at either end, close to public transport, and a mostly concrete seawall walk along a sometimes exposed coast. Great to blow the cobwebs away!.

Lovely, flat route, mostly on wide, pedestrian friendly paving. Beautiful views over the Wales and Hilbre Island. The path around Leasowe Bay can get very sandy sometimes. There is a nice cafe, the green hut, at Moreton shore. Highly recommended walk - peaceful.

This route has road sections with pavement at its start and end. At the Wallasey end, using the Harvester Derby Pool access road rather than continuing North to the sea wall is a quieter route. Navigation is easy, and there are extensive beach and sea views. For most of the route the surface is concrete but there is a section between the Old Gunsite and Leasowe Lighthouse which is unsealed and stony. Adjacent cycling and walking paths are present but usage is confused. It is almost impossible to walk most of the route without having to avoid cyclists using the path. Refreshments and toilets are available at Derby Pool (Wallasey), the Green Hut (just before Leasowe Lighthouse) and in Hoylake.
