This is an easy route, mainly along very rural lanes and sections of the major trails of Eddisbury Way and Baker Way. The first half is a gentle climb taking you half way up Kelsall Hill from where you can see lovely landscape views; and the return walk is therefore mainly downhill.

There is a mixture of kissing gates and stiles, most are in fair order, but some are very wobbly, and some are half rotted away. On a positive note, the gate on the drive to Peel Hall will open for you all on its own. You are not likely to be fending off cows and horses, but you will get quite close to them, and a few ducks and sheep.

There are a couple of small footpath diversions to keep you further away from farms, and in winter some parts of the route may be very muddy.

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, especially in winter; and there should be few problems for anyone wearing shorts. On your route there are no refreshments or facilities of any sort.
