One of our regular circular walks from Frodsham is via the top of Helsby Hill. The views on a clear day are wonderful with clear sightings of the Liverpool landmarks. Definitely recommended for the view.

This is a lovely little gem of a toddle. You can park easily and though you do have to walk uphill a little, the toddle is sooooooo worth it. You have a lovely unspoilt view across the Mersey estuary, up the Cheshire plain and down...More
