Peckforton, Bickerton, Bulkely and Larkton are all justly popular walking areas with well-marked and heavily used paths. This route lies just beyond the 'honeypots', using paths so little used that it would be prudent to have secateurs with you. The early part has occasional long views across the Dee Valley to Wales, with the hills around Llangollen much in evidence. Later, you look towards the Sandstone Ridge to see an aspect few others see. After this a gentle climb to the edge of the ridge gives more views, first towards Wales and later across Wirral to Merseyside. In good conditions I should expect to see Liverpool's cathedrals.

The route has different faces as the year progresses. In winter, there should be clear views and fewer fields will have livestock in them, though mud may be a challenge. In spring, the hedgerows will shine with blackthorn and the verges will be full of wildflowers. Summer is likely to be easiest underfoot but autumn can bring truly radiant colours, as some of the photos show.

Perhaps not a good idea to do this walk in August. The maize was 7 foot high which meant that the direction at waymark 7 failed - I couldn't see across the field (but crossed anyway). The waymarked stile at Waymark 12 is no longer there - just a new metal gate which was locked. As the field next to the pictured barn was again full of maize I used the lane to get to Waymark 15. The latch on the gate at Waymark 17 was jammed - had to climb over the gate.
