Walks in Mysterious Cheshire and Wirral

Walks in Mysterious Cheshire and Wirral

by: Tony Bowerman
The best way to explore Cheshire and Wirral, a landscape steeped in mystery, is on foot. This classic walking book contains fascinating, easy to follow walks exploring the unexpected past; from quiet strolls to hill and country rambles, by river, wood and ancient lane.

Discover Pete Marsh, the bog man; a gypsy king's grave; lost Roman and medieval roads; a church in the marshes; a ghostly duck and a headless procession; a stone elephant; a hermit's cave; a haunted bridge; ancient copper mines; packhorse bridges; saltways and more. Patrick O'Neill, editor of 'Cheshire Life' says "The 14 walks in this book certainly unearth the essential spice of life in Cheshire. Mysterious? You bet".

The walks all have clear step by step instructions supported by detailed sketch maps. Interspersed with the directions are fascinating details about the places encountered which are printed in italics to avoid any confusion when checking route information.
