An excellent short circular walk, starting along a section of probably the best long-distance footpath in Cheshire - The Sandstone Trail. The most notable features are the panoramic landscape views across the Cheshire plains that can be viewed in different directions from the two hillside ridges on the walk. The footpaths are all well used and the few stiles you need to climb are mostly in good order, as are other gates and footbridges. Most of the footpaths are enclosed between hedged walls and fences and the few across the ends of fields don’t contain farm animals. The outward route is uphill all the way, but the gradient is not too steep.

The walk is suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. In the autumn you'll pass conker trees. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and a difficult challenge for buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything stout and flat soled but boots will be best in winter or after periods of rain as mud will be encountered. There should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. On your route there are no refreshments, picnic tables, or any other facilities, but you will find a few seating places suitable for taking any refreshments. The general photo shows Rock Farm bed and breakfast.
