This tour will take you on an exploration of the industrial history of the former railway goods yard, and how this contributed to the wildlife biodiversity of the park. This will focus particularly on the brick-making and railway operations that shaped the park that stands today.
A short walk of approximately 600 metres, but there is so much to see in this short distance.
Tea and cakes will be provided at the end of the tour.
*The lower half of the park is disabled-accessible*
Car and bike parking is available on site and there are good public transport links available.
Enjoy a walk through Cleaver Heath and the Heswall Dales. The Heather will be in flower and you can discuss the flora and fauna of Lowland Heaths, as well as their management.
Enjoy spectacular views across the Dee Estuary, Cleaver Health nature reserve and the Heswall Dales.
Maximum group size will be 20, on a first-come-first-served basis, therefore booking is essential. Bookings can be made at: www.cheshirewildlifetrust.org.uk/events

We apologise, but no dogs are allowed.
Enjoy your local green space and plan a picnic for Have a Field Day 2019.
In 1934, the first Playing Fields Day was held and in this time Fields in Trust have protected over 2,800 parks and green spaces. Now, on the first Saturday in July, they hold their annual Have a Field Day, championing local parks and green spaces.
Why not organise your own picnic, and connect with your local green space again? They’re amazing for your physical and mental health!
