Covid-19

Do not walk if you are feeling unwell. Carry your own hand sanitiser. In case of an emergency ensure you have with you a face mask and first aid pack.
Inevitably, the route will go through gates and over stiles that other people will have touched. It may have narrow sections that mean you will be passing close to other people.

Rawhead, Harthill and Maiden Castle Circular

The walk starts from the road on top of Rawhead. We initially descend towards Brown Knowl but take the path towards Harthill and after passing through the village green we go around Park Wood with views across the Cheshire plain to Wales. We cross the road at Fullers Moor and proceed towards Brown Knowl, skirting Bickerton Hills before joining the Sandstone Trail to ascend to Maiden Castle. We follow the Sanstone Trail back towards Rawhead but take a detour around Bulkeley Hill before returning to our starting point on Rawhead.
