Waterside Walks in Cheshire

Waterside Walks in Cheshire

by: James F Edwards
Walking by the water always adds interest, as from birds and wildlife to boats and anglers, there is always something to look at. Cheshire is blessed with many wonderful waterways to explore. There are the great rivers such as the Weaver and the Dee; towpaths by canals such as the Bridgewater, the Macclesfield, the Shropshire Union and the Trent and Mersey; and the lakes such as Redesmere and Lymm Dam.

The 20 circular routes in this book are all between 3.5 and 8 miles in length. They take the walker along the banks of these waterways and through some of the most beautiful scenery in Cheshire. Each carefully described walk includes information such as how to get to the start, where to park and recommended nearby pubs and cafes. For greater clarity, the route descriptions are divided into numbered paragraphs which correspond with numbers on the accompanying sketch maps. In addition, there is a separate section about places of interest nearby.
