(Recreating this activity in the hope of better weather!) Dibbinsdale Nature Reserve is an example of ancient woodland in England, something that is quite rare. This means that broadleaf woodland has grown in the area since the 17th century. It is easily accessible from Liverpool or Chester via Spital station, or by car from junction 4 of the M53 in the direction of Bromborough (B Protected content . If coming by car there is a car park opposite Spital Station, or a larger one next to The Three Stags pub on the way to the station.
From the station we will cross the road and meet at the bus stop near the car park entrance. From there it is a short walk to an entrance to the nature reserve. Once we are there we can see the Dibbinsdale Brook, after which the reserve is named; we will see many trees and other plants; we may get a hint of St Patrick's Well, and if people are interested after the walk it is a 10-minute walk to the local pub The Three Stags.
Although the weather should be better come prepared for muddy paths if it has rained recently, and for rain to return. This is after all England!
