First time visit? It is advised to meet up at the obelisk as noted in the tab `meeting point` if this is not for you here are some directions.

Entrance to the `Hornbeam Cicle` from Devonshire Road

  • Go to Devonshire Road Liverpool L8 3TA.
  • Find the building names Deveonwall  Gardens which is next to a large white house numbered 5
  • Observe to the right of Deveonwall Gardens an entrance to a path, this path takes you into (my phrase) Sunnyside Annexe then onto Princes Park
  • Within 100 metres you should observe the Hornbeam Circle on your left, if you find yourself in Princes Park you have gone to far, turn around retrace your steps and be aware the Hornbeam Circle will now be on your right.
  • Here is an image showing the path entrance to the Sunnyside Annexe of Princes Park - I think legally this area is not park of Princes Park.
