Charity Walk Green – Peckforton and Bulkeley Hills

A leisurely local walk featuring a favourite area for the Club with a few hills to work up an appetite for the Club charity picnic, which follows the walk.


2 July 2023

No dogs

Both charity walks start from the same point at the same time. The aim is to get back to Di and Nev’s by 13:30 for the picnic.

We head off NE passing the Pheasant Inn (a destination for another time) along Pennsylvania Lane before turning SE with an ascent up the Eddisbury Way to Rock Lane and the Sandstone Trail.. We cross fields and dropping down to walk on the westerly then northerly edge of Peckforton woods. We leave the Sandstone Trail following Horsley Lane until we reach Stone House Lane. Here we turn S for a short distance until the reach the Lodge of Peckforton Castle. We continue past the Castle entrance through Peckforton village and then cut back across around Peckforton Hill. We follow Hill Lane to return to the cars.

For those sharing cars with Blue walkers, we can wait in the Pheasant Inn until the blue walk finishes.

Regularly used footpaths and quiet lanes.
