Blue

No dogs

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.

Utkinton – Eaton – Cotebrook

The Blue and Green charity walks both start at Rose Farm, Utkinton

The Blue walk follows a path around the back of the Farm and over fields and lanes to cross the busy A49, with a short walk along the pavement to the next foot path with takes us along the side of the golf course and down to Eaton village. We walk through the village and then across fields to join Dogmore Lane running along side Oulton Park and on to the track on the side of Little Budworth Country Park.

We then leave the park and head across fields to Cotebrook from where we follow minor roads and field paths up to Rowley Farm at the highest point of the walk with views across Cheshire to the Pecforton Hills. From there we walk down to Utkinton school and the turn up to Ian and Paula’s house, where we meet up with the Green walkers and gather for ‘pot luck’ lunch.

Ian and Paula have agreed that we can drop off food etc at their house prior to parking at Rose farm to avoid having to walk back to the Rose Farm car park to collect anything for the lunch.
