Hoylake and Red Rocks

Directions: Approaching Hoylake from the Liverpool/ Birkenhead direction on the A553 proceed straight through the main shopping area (Market Street) until you come to the "Knot" roundabout . Turn right along Kings Gap Road. First left is Stanley Road leading to Red Rocks with views over the sea to the right (1) and Red Rocks Nature Reserve to the left (2), straight on takes you to Hoylake Promenade (North Parade), the beach (3) and sand banks (4). The Lifeboat Station and ajacent grassy area is a good viewpoint and affords some shelter from a westerly gale (5). There is parking both on Stanley Road and the Promenade. Hoylake has good train and bus links with both Liverpool and Birkenhead. Map Refs: Red Rocks SJ 202886, Hoylake Shore (West End) SJ 213893.
To the south of the railway station is a path leading to Gilroy road in West Kirby (6). This takes you past both the Langfields and Gilroy pool. The path can be accessed from the end of New Hall lane (off Carr lane) which takes you through New Hall farm yard - a bit muddy, or you can get to it from Gilroy road West Kirby. The path is tarmaced and usually dry.
