NOTE: Safeguarding against the coronavirus is likley to be a part of everyday life for the forseeable future. We advise that two metres social distancing and checking the latest guidelines are the best course of action.
Chester sightseeing circular route
October 2019 issue
A three-mile walk is packed with Chester’s best views: the racecourse and the Dee as seen from the Grosvenor Bridge, the ruddy Old Dee Bridge in all its 600-year-old glory, the weir on the Dee (a grade 1 listed building, no less), the elegant lines of the Queen’s Park Bridge, the lately-refurbished Grosvenor Park and, of course, those city walls.
Mow Cop Castle
October 2018 issue
Head for the heights of Mow Cop Castle, not exactly a castle but a folly built in 1754 by Randle Wilbraham, the local Lord of the Manor, it’s a great way to view the changing seasons.
October 2017 issue
Woodland walks in Autumn are always a delight, but this walk passes by a prominent tree in Cheshire. The Bostock Oak is said to stand in the centre of the county of Cheshire.
West Kirby and Hilbre Island
October 2016 issue
A walk that’s out of the ordinary and does involve a certain amount of forward planning. We take the walk from West Kirby to Hilbre Island.
October 2015 issue
A walk around a quiant little corner of Cheshire, taking in the major throughfares of the county with the Trans Pennine Trail and the Bridegwater Canal.
October 2014 issue
A family walk around near the Wales/Cheshire border, a good excursion for half term activities.
All the routes were correct at the time of publication, over time access to certain parts of the walk may be subject to change. We advise you acquire a recent OS map of the area you plan to visit and assure there are no major changes.
