Caldy is a small, affluent village on the Wirral Peninsula, England, located to the south east of West Kirby and is situated on the eastern side of the Dee Estuary. The historic village is characterised by the following:

• Winding roads with sandstone walls • properties enclosed by high walls with private yards or gardens • well maintained public or semi-public spaces with shrubs and herbaceous plants with a mixture of winding and long straight roads overhung with mature trees • Relatively high density • Low building heights • ‘single material’ houses • use of natural stone, pale brown brick or ‘black and white’ • many houses have eaves dormers, mullioned windows and kneelers on gables • Vertical boarded timber front fences

A very 'take-it-easy' day. A relaxing, if not cold, walk for an hour or so along the cliff top of the River Dee here on the Wirral Way. The sky has been clear all day with the sun shining strongly and definitely giving a warming effect when one is seated out of the slight breeze. We look across the river onto the shores and gently rising slopes of northern Wales. We have watched the tide come in and out leaving the numerous small boats mud stuck or floating gently.
