Is it possible does anybody know whether you can walk across the Dee Estuary from the Wirral over to North Wales because everytime I look when the tide is out it looks like just sand.

I would think not, surely there must be mudflats and streams that we dont see from the shorelines. I would advise you not to try anyway smile

Thank you Dilly and Bertieone. I guessed it was probably not possible, even though when you look over when the tide is out that it it is. The article that was linked is so harrowing. Those poor boys have gave up their lives as a warning to never try it. I have friends who live in Mostyn and have often contemplated a walk across the sands when I have parked up near the Dee Sailing Club in Caldy to save money on petrol, but reckon after reading that devastating story about those poor boys and the effect on their families that it's a risk not worth taking.

A few years ago by the blue bridge i watched a lad walk into the water at low tide from the welsh side. Expecting him to sink up to his neck i slowed down on my bike and watched. He got nearly waist deep and made the other side, turned round and walked back much to the amusement of his friends. So yes you can walk across the Dee but i would not recommend it

@pacef8 so funny, reminds me of when I was at the River Dee in Chester on a sweltering hot summer day watching youngsters throwing themselves off the walk bridge and one of them ending up landing in a belly flop. She was ok though luckily.

If that guy was waist deep by the blue bridge at low tide then I guess further north up the coast must exist more perils.

Don't even think about it, remember if you did try and screwed it up, others will risk their lives trying to get to you so, please don't, the Dee is beautiful and looking from the Wirral way or the beach is safer alternative.

I wonder though if there was a miniature canoe, that could be developed that you could carry?

Please, just put the whole idea out of your head. As has already been pointed out, you could end up endangering yourself and others.

As there is no large boat movements past mostyn docks. You would think they would build a road bridge across

Would it be viable? They would have to work out where to build it, where the local roads could cope with the extra traffic and not have the locals protesting. Then charge to go on it to pay for it, then put up the cost each year, so the protesters are kept happy.
