Reasons to visit

The Breck sits on a ridge 80 feet above sea level, giving commanding views of north Wirral, the sea and the distant Welsh hills. An area of beautiful semi-natural woodland, The Breck is a haven for wildlife with an abundance of bird species, including long-tailed tits and sparrowhawks. Ravens are frequently spotted soaring over the ridge.

The Breck was once owned by Sir John Tobin of Liscard Hall who developed the site as a quarry. The sandstone crags that remain from the old quarry (including Granny Rock, Bluebell Wall, Eagle Rock and the Overhang) provide some of the best rock climbing and bouldering in the Wirral area.


The Breck Community Volunteers meet every Thursday from 10am to 2pm. Come along and join the rangers as a volunteer in a range of tasks to improve 'The Breck'. Tasks include tree thinning, path maintenance, pruning, bramble clearance and litter picking.
