Pleasant walks with camera and three dogs
As the weather today was cold and windy, with intermittent heavy rain I decided that a sheltered walk was in order, and Roddlesworth Woods seemed like a good choice. So I parked my car near the United Utilities Information Centre and, together with my good friend Anne Hayes and my dogs Brett, Molly and Sam, set off for a gentle stroll alongside the River Roddlesworth.
The Roddlesworth and Tockholes Woodlands were planted in 1904 to help prevent soil erosion into the River Roddlesworth as this provides water to the Roddlesworth Reservoirs. These had been built by Liverpool Corporation in the mid 19th century to help supply Liverpool with its increasing demands for water. Now the woods are crisscrossed by many paths that provide visitors with excellent walks and also creates a diverse habitat for a variety of wildlife and flora.
