Easy Countryside Walks

Updated: - 19th November 2018

Meet; Chat; Make New Friends........Our walks are such good fun; enjoy magnificent scenery while chatting with someone about your job, holidays, pets, hobbies, fantasies, family, health – anything but politics – and perhaps make some new friends. They proceed at a steady pace so there is plenty of time to chat, and are excellent gentle exercise for people of all ages. The joining instructions for the next walk are detailed below.

The next SUNDAY morning walk will be on 16th December; and the following one on Sunday 20th January. If you’re interested, please make a note the dates. The walk on 16th December will be a circular walk featuring a waterway and we will meet on the rear car park of the ‘Bowling Green’ pub at Northwich.

If you will be using a map first find Cheshire then Northwich. The pub is on A533 London Road, close to the river in the center of the town. Grid ref: SJ 658 731. If you are using a SatNav, enter the post code CW9 8AA or the co-ordinates: 53.25364, 002.51349

Please arrive at 10.00am for a 10.15 start. Toilet facilities should be available. Find the damson Toyota and introduce yourself to Derek. The walk will proceed at a slow pace and newcomers are very welcome - the more the merrier. If you have any comment, questions, need a lift, or have any requests, please message me using the link under the photo. The walk will finish with a drink or an optional pub lunch, please book your own table in advance: - 01606 624506.

This walk should again be fairly easy as all the footpaths are good. It will be fine for all the family, excellent for dogs as there are no stile, and also good for wheelchairs & buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything stout and flat soled, but if it has been recently raining paths some may be a bit muddy. We need more walkers to join our small group so don’t be shy, make a note of the date on your calendar now.

We normally meet monthly on a Sunday morning and some of the walks finish with an optional pub lunch. Our walks are normally circular and within twenty miles of Chester and travel to the start of each walk is by car. Many routes are suitable for all the family, often including your dog. There will be a short break half way round for ‘bring your own’ refreshments. You will also need to bring waterproofs if there may be showers.

WalkingWorld members, Nextdoor members, Chester residents, and anyone who Googled us are welcome to join our walks. If you have any questions, or need a lift to the start, please ask using the link under the photo, and if you‘ll be coming along for the first time you’ll be especially welcome and we look forward very much to meeting you.
