Easy Countryside Walks

Updated: - 19th October 2018

The next walk will be on SUNDAY morning 18th November. It will be a WATERWAY WALK and we will meet on the car park of The Farmers Arms pub, Marsh Lane, in the village of Ravensmoor. If you will be using a map first find Cheshire then Nantwich; then about two miles south west find Ravensmoor. Grid ref: SJ 621 506. If you are using a SatNav, enter the post code CW5 8PN or the co-ordinates: 53.05118, 002.56726

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.

This walk will finish with an optional pub lunch and should again be fairly easy. The walk is suitable for older teenagers, senior citizens and anyone in-between. It is only good for small dogs due to the numerous stiles, and hopeless for wheelchairs & buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything stout and flat soled, but boots will be best as there may be ploughed fields to cross at this time of the year. There are refreshments, toilets and picnic tables at the pub at the start and finish of the walk. We urgently need more walkers to join our small group so don’t be shy, make a note of the date on your calendar now and ask a friend along too.

Easy walks three to five miles long are offered at a slow walking speed, often through spectacular countryside. Good for beginners of all ages and experienced walkers are also welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The walks are normally circular and within twenty miles of Chester. Travel to the start of each walk is by car - and lifts are usually available. We normally meet monthly on a Sunday morning and some of the walks finish with an optional pub lunch.

Many routes are suitable for all the family, often including your dog. There will be a short break for ‘bring your own’ refreshments. You will also need to bring waterproofs if there may be showers, and for some walks boots will be needed. 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 forwards very much to meeting you.
