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.
This is a short green walk – we plan to do this at a leisurely pace with optional drinks at the Farmers Arms, Waste Lane, Kelsall at the end.
This circular walk starts at the car park in Yeld Lane, Kelsall. We walk towards Delamere forest and then follow a short section of the Sandstone Trail to Primrose Wood.
After walking through Primrose Wood, we cross fields towards Eddisbury and then along the Roman road, passing Hanginstone Hill to Pale Heights. From Old Pale Hill (176m Height) there is a 360-degree view – on a clear day we will be able to see the Manchester sky line, Merseyside and the mountains of North Wales.
The stone markers point the direction of 7 counties Cheshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire. Shropshire and Staffordshire in England and Denbighshire and Flintshire
in North Wales.
We then head down the hill and back to the car park.
