Historic Walks in Cheshire

Historic Walks in Cheshire

by: Jim Rubery
Cheshire offers much of what is best about traditional England: charming villages, friendly towns, famous stately homes, glorious gardens, fascinating museums and, of course, one of Europe's most historic and popular cities, Chester itself. There are also over 2,200 miles of fine walking on public rights of way that range from the wild, upland landscape of the Peak District to lush riverside pastures and meadows.

The guide describes 20 routes, illustrated with OS 1: 50,000 Landranger mapping and plenty of excellent colour photographs. The routes are circular, up to 9 miles in length, and range from canal-side strolls to rambles through wilder upland landscapes. All the routes are full of historic interest, combining landscape with architecture and natural beauty with history. The text includes lots of historical notes about the places visited as well as all the practical information necessary for planning and facilities on the walks.
