Mersey Way

Halton, Merseyside, Warrington

35 km / 22 miles
The Mersey Way closely follows the north bank of the river and estuary of the Mersey from Rixton, east of Warrington to Garston, Liverpool, linking Paddington Meadows and the Pickering Pasture and Speke & Garston Coastal Nature Reserves. The route in part follows the Woolston New Cut as well as the St Helens Canal between Warrington and Widnes, where it is concurrent with the Trans-Pennine Trail.

Once a filthy industrial wasteland, the Mersey Estuary is now a Site of Special Scientific Interest, rich in wildlife, including salmon, as well as a centre for walking, cycling and watersports.
