Pictures of Heswall

in the county of Merseyside

About Heswall

Heswall, although situated on the banks of the River Dee remains very much part of Merseyside. It is fortunate to occupy a spacious area fringed by green wooded countryside, and is close to sands commencing at near-by Thurstaston which continue round the coast to Wallasey.

The town is a mixture of architecture, it has handsome houses and cottage properties - some which are of the black and white timber-frame style. These can be found along leafy lanes and in the winding roads leading away from Heswall towards the Mersey River. It is an old area, which despite modern attachments, has parts which have managed to remain unchanged for almost a century.

From areas of Heswall there are views of pleasant pastures and towards the rich green hills of Wales. Heading in the direction of Neston there is an RSPB site and Ness Botanic Gardens, and in the opposite direction visitors will find a golf club. There are pleasant coastal walks, picnic spots and further along the river estuary boats can be launched to explore the river as it makes its way towards Chester.

Heswall is a lively place, it offers much for residents, it is the home of the Starlight Youth Theatre which trains young people of all ages for a musical career as well as offering recording facilities for local groups. There are plenty of opportunities for leisure, including pubs, hotels, restaurants, cinema, and for the energetic there is a tennis club.
