Starting from the charming village of Kingsley, this circular walk along enchanting footpaths out of the town and across a host of meadows connected by a string of kissing gates. Farm drives and tracks bring you to the river Weaver and the North Cheshire Way along its bank, giving landscape views across the river on one side, and farmland on the other. At Catton Hall the footpath takes you through a long belt of bankside woodland, this time taking you over a string of short wooden bridges over marshy undergrowth. The walk is best undertaken in summer in fine weather, as the woodland path has one point of hazardous diversion past a fallen tree, which is slippery in winter and when wet; and you will not be able to avoid the short but muddy bog at the end of the wood. Also, the meadows are likely to be soggy underfoot. The return route is along tracks and quiet country lanes and the final short footpath presents you with the only two stiles on this walk. Followed by a landscaped lane taking you back to the pub at the end. You can also enjoy walk 8704 from the same starting locations as this walk. This walk includes instruction for walkers from moored river boats.

The walk is probably suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, but boots will be best and essential in winter or after heavy rain. However, there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. On your route there are no refreshments, bench seats, or any other facilities, except for the pub at the start and finish, where if you book in advance, you should be able to get a good meal with a nice drink; an excellent finish to a good walk.
