Sefton Coastal Path 1: Waterloo - Hightown Walk


Waterloo Station - Crosby Promenade - Hightown Dunes - Hightown Station

Architecture along the route reflects Liverpool's seafaring past, including the Victorian homes of once-prosperous captains. The thriving 19th Century economy of Liverpool was reflected in the impressive houses positioned away from the docks. 
The shore itself is now most famous for Anthony Gormley's fantastic bronzes gazing wistfully out to sea. The area is also notable for sand-dunes, meadows covered in wildflowers and evidence of a submerged forest. Towards the end of the route, keep an eye out for shore birds including curlew and the impressively named bar-tailed godwit in the Alt Estuary.
