Sustrans – The Cheshire Lines Path – Merseyside North Volunteers

The other day at a Maghull in Bloom meeting Ed, a local volunteer, told us about another Maghull volunteering project that he is involved with and a great project it is too.

Ed’s other volunteering group is called Merseyside North Volunteers who support the work of the environmental footpath/cycle path charity Sustrans. Sustrans, of course, are responsible for the Cheshire Lines Path which runs from Southport to Maghull and onwards into Liverpool as part of the Trans Pennine Trail.

This is the old Sefton & Maghull Station just prior to demolition in the early 1960's. A factory now stands on the site.

The main access to the path in Maghull for those using it to travel northwards to Southport or indeed those coming into Maghull from the other direction is at Sefton Drive, only yards away from the former Sefton & Maghull railway station. Now frankly this gateway to the path is not all that it could be, often covered with rubbish and litter and dog fouling. I have covered this problematic area previously on this blog site and my last posting about it is accessible via the link below:-

What Ed had to tell us was that his group of volunteers and Sustrans are working on a small project to try to improve things and here’s a link to that project:-

If you shop at TESCO you can help by voting for the ‘Meadow Project’ until 6th March.

Let’s hope this volunteer initiative is a success.
