Approached from the steap south side, blustery at the top, on visit to Liverpool with my daughter. The post code L25 6HR was more useful in the sat nav then the grid refference SJ 41923 87378.Walkingthedog28/11/2018

Drive by.David Evans21/01/2018
Traverse from Liverpool South Parkway to Broad Green station heading NE past Allerton cemetary, Clarke gardens then North at road junction through estate to the covered reservoir. A Highways car was parked about 30m beyond the summit, however after 10 mins and no sign of activity so I climbed over railing and walked on top. Continued exploration by visiting Reynolds park, the West side of Black Wood and then on a footpath through Childwall woods veering off on a bearing NE through scrub and nasty brambles in places to arrive at minor road then across to the former Liverpool loop line, now a recreational path that I followed all the way to Broad Green station.Dazingdale08/12/2017
