  1. Parkgate

    This is the only coastal resort in Cheshire. We went for a ride out looking for the coastal wildlife but nothing much there but we did see a Peregrine Falcon snatch a Starling that was on it's own but it was too quick for me. Parkgate is a beautiful and quiet corner of the Wirral,wit spectacular views across the River Dee Estuary to the Welsh hills. The spring high tides are always an impressive sight when the water comes right up to the Parade wall.However it can sometimes mean that there are road closures depending on the height of the tide. Along the 1.5 mile stretch of the Parkgate Parade on the Wirral...restaurants,pubs,25 bedroom hotel,clothes shop,ice-cream parlours,chip shop, seafood shop, general stores and much more. The reedbeds & marshes of the Dee Estuary stretch out on your right, and the Welsh hills provide a spectacular backdrop. On Spring tides,especially when aided by northerly winds, much of what seems dry land is covered. Birds & small mammals, driven inland by the encroaching water, provide easy picking for raptors such as the Marsh Harrier. Burton Point, just north of the Welsh border here, is a sandstone outcrop behind which there are some Iron Age earthworks.There are, however, some interesting erosion patterns on the outcrop itself, and even the modest height gain provides a wide panorama of the Dee Estuary, from Queensferry right up to the point of Ayr.
