From the car park we headed down to the lake. We then headed west, following the northern shore of the lake. The path goes through woodland but there are plenty of opportunities on the route to stop at the water’s edge.

Heading along the southern shore we came across a sensory garden. Shortly after this we got a view of the River Mersey.
