The Local Nature Reserve of Childwall Woods and Fields is a wonderful place for a walk in the countryside without leaving the city.

Here are some walks to take you around the site without leaving your armchair. JUST CLICK ON THE TITLE. 

We hope you enjoy them.

 

Walk 1The Carriageway and the Grounds of Childwall Hall 

 

 

Of the many walks around Childwall Woods and Fields, the walk that begins with the carriageway is the most magical. The carriageway dates back to when this was the main entrance to the grand Childwall Hall known in its heyday as Childwall Abbey due to its monastic look. This is a short walk through the carriageway and back through the grounds.   30 minute approx

 

 

 

Walk 2The Grounds of Childwall Hall

 

 

This walk will take you all around ‘The Grounds’ of Childwall Hall (no longer standing) on a circular route starting and ending at the Lodge on Childwall Abbey Road. There is a detour around the Folly with its unique rock structures and contorted trees and you will wander over a sunken carriageway and between veteran trees hundreds of years old, before returning back to the Lodge.   1hr approx

 

 

Walk 3The Top Field, through the Willow Plantation, and The Grounds.

 

 

This walk is a circular route taking you up onto the Top Field, around the edge, and through the Willow Plantation. After a short walk through the Beech Woods, you will cut through the centre of the Top Field to experience very different environments at each stage of your walk.  45mins approx
