Cheshire - A Dog Walker's Guide

Cheshire - A Dog Walker's Guide

by: Judy Smith
On a fine day there is nothing quite as enjoyable as getting out into the countryside with your dog for a leisurely walk. With 150 miles of canal towpath, a wealth of stately homes with extensive and accessible grounds, an abundance of country parks and many miles of resurfaced disused railway line, Cheshire is a dog walker's paradise. If you throw in some of the wilder areas of moorland and forest, the estuary shore, and the splendid ridge of the Peckfortons, you have quite enough for any dog!

The 20 dog-friendly walks in this book vary in length between 1.5 and 6 miles. All the walks include details of dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog friendly pubs and cafes and contact details for the nearest vets. Other practical information includes distance, terrain, where to park, how to get there including grid references and nearest refreshments. The route finding instructions are in clear numbered paragraphs supported by a coloured sketch map with corresponding location numbers.
