A Cheshire walking classic. With this book you’ll discover parts of Cheshire and Wirral you never knew existed. Ranging from 3-7 miles/5-11 kilometres in length, each of the walks features a reader-friendly factfile, clear route map and matching numbered walks directions, plentiful black and white and colour photographs, as well as fascinating snippets on local history, folklore, architecture and wildlife.
The 30 short circular walks in this book have been written with the non-serious walker in mind, varying in length from just 1 to 4¾ miles (1.5km to 7.5km). Each walk has something of interest to discover — you will visit the site of an ancient port now completely dried out and over a mile inland; a seafront with neither sand nor sea; a wild, wooded river valley in the heart of industrial Merseyside and a lowland heath with wide views to the Welsh hills
