On a cold winter's morning, Marilyn Stevenson, accompanied by her daughter Helen, walked along the bed of Shotwick Brook. They were undertaking research into the extent of ancient tidal waters, which in times past, encroached upon Shotwick village. This was the start of Wirral's Coast, a book based on a walk along the length of the Wirral Peninsula, from Saughall in the south, to Red Rocks in the north, following the coastline as much as possible. Each step, along ancient lanes and footpaths, brings the reader ever closer to discovering Wirral's hidden past. Historical, archaeological and geological information has been gathered, which enables the reader to enjoy walking through the history of the area they are travelling over. Hundreds of local surnames have been recorded in Wirral's Coast, the names have been taken from documents held in Cheshire Archives, and some family surnames can be traced back over 500 years, perhaps your name is amongst them? Wirral's Coast can be read as an armchair read, or as a guide for an afternoon stroll, or for the more energetic a full day's walk. Whichever option you choose, you will uncover more concerning Wirral's coast and its history, than you ever imagined. Whether in sun, rain, fair winds or foul, enjoy your walks, enjoy Wirral!
