About Helsby

Helsby sits between the River Weaver and the Manchester Ship Canal. It is famous for Helsby Hill which rises to a height of 462ft, and has traces of an Iron-Age camp. From here there are spectacular views of surrounding countryside and the majestic sweep of the Mersey river.

The hill is mainly of Sandstone, it has been used as a practice ground for climbers. There is easy access from above Helsby, but interested visitors should beware, in winter the rock is covered with slime making access to the summit difficult.
