Ponder the View From Public Footpath in Neston

Published: 11th August 2020 09:02

AboutMyArea reader Janet Dawe has sent in two photos and asked us to show some appreciation for the efforts of local farmer Gill Downey.

Leighton Road footpath

The shots are taken at and from a stopping place created by Gill part-way down a public footpath off Leighton Road in Neston.

At the beginning of lockdown Gill recognised that there would likely be more people taking walks in the local area, so set about improving fencing along the footpath, and putting in place a stopping point for those in need of a breather.

A plaque on the bench reads:

'A time to ponder. Please feel free to sit awhile.'

Janet told AboutMyArea: "It is a beautiful spot with a lovely view, the perfect place to stop with my coffee on my regular walks.

"I pick up some eggs at Old Oaks Farm (opposite), then use the footpath to make my way back down to Parkgate. We are very lucky to have such wonderful scenery - if you can't survive lockdown in Neston, you can't anywhere!"

Provides a lovely quiet walk away from the hustle and bussle of the Parkgate Promenade - thank you Gill

Well how lovely that people are enjoying our bench. We had a little difficulty with dogs off the lead during the lock down period. Protecting our livestock is paramount but we wanted to balance this with walkers and their dogs being able to enjoy the right of way. Please feel free to pick strawberries, mint and rosemary. We hope to have more goodies next year but you have to be quick to get there before the rabbits!

We didn't use the path with our dog even on a lead but I walked that way a few weeks ago to visit the farm shop & discovered the new fence and lovely seat. Thank you so much this now gives us more options for walks with the dog away from the busy Parade
