The view across Elton and Ellesmere Port towards the Wirral.
Helsby Hill is a wooded sandstone hill 370 feet (110 m) above sea level. The hill has steep cliffs on the northern and western sides and is a prominent landmark rising above the Cheshire Plain and overlooking the Mersey Estuary. Much of the hill is owned and managed by the National Trust. It is the site of Helsby hill fort, an ancient British hillfort, and more recently acquired a concrete pillar trig point on its summit.
