a walk in the park

We've been meaning to make it to the Sankey Valley Park in Warrington ever since, well, we moved here. Its at the western edge of the city centre, and close to a house we nearly leased.

There is a real ale pub called The Maltings nearby where you can park, enjoy the beer garden, and then take a long walk in either direction along the canal. There are interesting little bits every so often like a huge sculpture of an archery board and arrows stuck into it (arros about 20ft tall) or playgrounds for children.

One other nifty feature we found is a good sized hedge maze, though it needs a little TLC it was still fun.

Here is what it looks like from the sky...
