On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Ainsdale to Crossens

The route is flanked by the salt marshes of the Ribble which are managed by Natural England and Sefton Council and are suitable for cycling. Attractions include Marshside RSPB Reserve – one of the country’s top reserves for breeding wading birds; Southport’s wonderful pier, Marine Lake, The Promenade, Lord Street shopping and dining; the brand new suspension bridge; the Ocean Plaza complex and the Queen’s Jubilee Nature Trail. Southport’s extensive events programme includes the Southport Flower Show and the Southport Air Show. A combination of trains from Ainsdale to Southport and buses to Crossens allow an easy return to your starting point.
