A lovely short circular walk near Chester, with lots of landscape variety and a little used footpath; just long enough to work up a good appetite for a nice meal at the end. The highlight of the walk is passing through the delightful Dingle Wood and emerging onto the site of the historic Shotton Castle. However, some sections of the route are along good footpaths, with the old bridges and wooden stiles being gradually replaced and modernised with stylish steel kissing gates and latched gates.

The walk is suitable for teenagers, senior citizens and anyone in-between. It is also good for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. In summer suitable footwear will be anything flat-soled but in winter, or if there has recently been heavy rain, some of the paths may be very muddy with numerous puddles so boots would be recommended; but there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. There are no refreshments, toilets or picnic tables except at the pub at the start and finish. If you book in advance, you should be able to get that good meal with your drink; an excellent finish to a good walk, and at the same time mention your intended use of their carpark for your walk. For the menu and to book a table go to: -; or you can telephone them on 01244 881122 and book a table. There are three walks in this locality - this is a shorter version of walk 7989, and for a different route see walk 7578.
