Has Cheshire got a coastline?

Depends what you classify as coastline, there, s the Mersey Estuary (which is tidal), from Runcorn, to Ellesmere Port - then to the South West (as you go to North Wales) you have a bit of the North Sea as it joins the River Dee.

If you look at old maps, all the Wirral was part of Cheshire.

That area is largely made up of sandy beaches (where there are beaches). The closest you would get, that I can think of, is at Blundellsands. Whilst it is a sandy beach there, there is a spot just near the coastgoard station where there is a large build up of larger 'pebble-like' rocks just where the promenade runs out and the sand dunes start...just remembered I had a shot in my pf - fg is a bit dark but you get the gist...

It is the Irish Sea at the end of the Wirral

As far as I am aware, the Wirral is still part of Cheshire. It never left.
