Easy Countryside Walks

Updated: - 14th February 2019

WHEN: - The next walk will be on Sunday 17th February, and the following one on 17th March. If you’re interested, please make a note the dates and times. The February circular walk will be fairly flat, about 3.5 miles long, feature a waterway and occasional announcements about adjacent locations.

WHERE: - Walkers travelling by car using a map should first find Warrington, then Daresbury, about four miles south west - alongside the A56. The walk starts from the Ring O'Bells pub on Daresbury Lane. (The start of the B5356). Grid ref: SJ 579 829. If you are using a SatNav, enter the post code WA4 4AJ or use the co-ordinates: 53.34107, 002.63302.

TIME: - Please arrive at 10.45am for an 11.00 start. Toilet facilities should be available. Find the damson Toyota and introduce yourself to Derek. The walk will proceed at a steady pace and newcomers are very welcome - the more the merrier.

FINISH: - The walk will finish with a drink at the pub or an optional pub lunch, please book your own table in advance for 1.00 pm; telephone 01925 740256. Before the walk starts we’ll ask the landlord to put all the tables together.

NOTES: - This walk should again be fairly easy as all the footpaths are quite good. It will be fine for all the family and excellent for dogs and buggies as there are no stiles. Suitable footwear will be anything stout and flat soled. If you have any comment, questions, need a lift, or have any requests, please send me a message. 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.
