Walks Into History - Cheshire Guidebook

Walks Into History - Cheshire Guidebook

by: Brian Conduit
The lively and informative routes in this full colour guide take the walker on a journey through history, passing sites of ancient hill forts, medieval castles and grand houses. The walks also visit mills, royal forests and battlefields, purpose built industrial villages and the world's first radio telescope.

The sixteen circular walks explore some of the most beautiful countryside in Cheshire. They vary in length between 1.5 and 8.5 miles and are suitable for walkers of all ages and fitness levels. Information such as how to get to the start, where to park and where to stop for refreshments is given. The sketch maps include numbers which correspond with the numbered paragraphs in the text so that walkers can see at a glance where they are.

One of the routes visits the historic buildings and distinctive covered walkways of Chester; other routes take in the wonderful views from the ruins of Beeston Castle, the beautiful timber-framed and moated manor house of Little Moreton Hall, and the excellently preserved Quarry Bank Mill on the river Bollin. There are also walks to the Anderton boat lift, constructed in the early 1870s; the giant Lovell telescope at Jodrell Bank; and the elegant mansion and landscaped gardens of Tatton Park.
