Save Our Footpaths - get off the beaten track, this circular walk is along footpaths close to Chester which are not often used. There are some challenging sections which make this walk more suitable to the serious walker. If you need to get away for some peace and quiet it will be a good choice of route as once away from the village it is very unlikely that you will meet anyone, and there are no roads with heavy traffic. The sections along lanes are quite short. All of the paths are well drained and those near to Christleton are probably used by dog walkers as they are well used and easy to follow. Stiles and footbridges are in good order and bridle path gates are quite new. On the return route the paths across some fields have gaps through the crops but are likely to be muddy if it has been raining. Some small meadows may have cows so take a walking stick. (You will pass the red phone box in the photo on the right at the very end of your walk - the pub and parking are just round the bend).

The walk is probably most suitable for teenagers, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Okay for dogs, but some stiles are not dog friendly and the walk is hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled but boots will be best; and avoid wearing shorts as there is a waist high section of nettles, brambles and other weeds to do battle with; and taking some small secateurs to cut back brambles would be very useful. On your route there are no refreshments, caf├ęs, picnic tables or bench seats; but there are shops and pub with food and toilets at the start and finish of the walk. If you book in advance, you should be able to park on the pub car park and get a good meal with a drink, an excellent finish to a good walk.
