Walks Around the Sandstone Ridge

Walks Around the Sandstone Ridge

by: Steve Goodier
The twenty walks in this guide cover the great Sandstone Ridge which runs down the west side of Cheshire from the coastal regions around Frodsham before terminating towards the Shropshire border some thirty miles distant. Along and around this elevated ground you will find sandstone outcrops, lovely woodland, ancient castles, meres and many lovely villages. All these walks are either on the hill country of the ridge or very close to it. The guide also takes in excursions to an ancient mere and explores the great Forest of Delamere, as well as the rolling heathland of Little Budworth Common. Some of the walks include sections of the Sandstone Trail.

Each walk chapter includes an overview description with details of how to get to the start. This is followed by detailed route finding instructions in numbered paragraphs which correspond to points on a sketch map. Additional background information is provided about many of the places visited.
