Cheshires scenery is rivalled by few other counties: high moorlands, languid rivers, lush pastures, and its craggy sandstone and gritstone outcrops. There are ancient towns, pretty villages and architectural gems, linked by countless footpaths and bridleways and well-endowed with tea shops! Few of the walks in this book exceed five miles and most are much shorter. All are designed to reveal the rich tapestry of Cheshires landscape, history and wildlife. The reward at the end of each walk is afternoon tea or morning coffee, or a leisurely lunch in one of nearly thirty recommended (and tested) establishments. These include a monastic refectory, a station waiting room, and 18th-century cotton mill and several garden centres.
