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.

A decent enough route through a lovely part of the Wirral, but not without its problems.

The section from Neston is nice enough; a well-paved and well-provisioned with shops, followed by good footpaths through fields to the old riverside. The terrain and often muddy nature of these paths do make it only suitable for foot traffic only, unfortunately.

The path through Little Neston is along quiet unpaved roads, which are safe enough to use and often used by walkers. Once we get to Ness, however, it is all unpaved roads, uphill, into Burton.

Burton is a lovely little village, but the road through it, and away, is more unpaved roads, hedges on each side, proving to be blind corners in places. Once we leave the road and take the footpaths through Puddington, pavements only then appear, shortly before we once again head across fields towards Shotwick.

The fields and tracks in and around Shotwick can often be muddy, so do take care! Once we slip over the unnoticed border into Wales, we're in a paved industrial estate, before joining a tarmacced path that takes us to Hawarden Bridge and Shotton beyond.

The path takes an unnecessary kink around a field before the bridge, and the route does not show the true means to navigate upper and lower Shotton stations.

I'd recommend NESSHO Three as a much better guide to the route, but also recommend NESSHO Two for those wishing to avoid road walking.

The route is well described in detail by the previous reviewer Mary Oz. Easy rail connection between the start and end points. Second half of the walk was much more interesting than the first half, with historic halls and farmhouses in the 3 villages and open views across the Dee to the Welsh hills.

The exact route from Shotton is not very accurately plotted. Because of this, I am not verifying this route, but have uploaded Nessho Three to show a more accurate version. We had problems knowing exactly where to walk as we set off from Shotton as the route just flies from the start point over the low level railway line and over the river above the railway bridge.
