Guided walk programme 2019:

Walk 1 – Saturday 13th April

Our first walk of 2019 took place in sunny but rather chilly weather; some would say ideal conditions for walking!
We were joined by 56 visitors who were entertained by our resident poet, Terry, as well as hearing the stories relating to a dozen or so of the people resting in Flaybrick.
The Friends of Flaybrick are grateful for the amazing level of support shown by visitors and we look forward to seeing you again for our walk in May, when you will hear another selection of stories.
Please keep in touch via this website and also on our social media sites.

Walk 2 –  Saturday 11th May

Our second walk of the year took place in warm late spring sunshine, a great relief to us all following the thunderstorms of the previous day.

Another large group of visitors joined us for the tour of Flaybrick which on this occasion allowed supporters to see all of the site and in a couple of areas they were also able to spot our intrepid volunteers working hard!

During the walk visitors heard  about the dreadful Vittoria Dock disaster of 1909, stories of several of the fallen from World War One and also learned the history of the Cross of Sacrifice which stands proudly at the top of the main drive.

Once again the Friends of Flaybrick are so grateful for the level of support shown and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on our third walk of the year on 8th June.

Walk 3 – Saturday 8th June

As we reach the 75th anniversary of the D Day landings, we will stop and remember one of the major planners of the allied invasion of Europe.

In addition, visitors will hear about several of Wirral’s major political figures resting in Flaybrick as we conduct our latest walk around the historic site.

Visitors will as usual be able to look around the chapels which will be open between 11.30 and 1.30.
