This walk explores the peaceful countryside of South East Cheshire. The ancient woodland called Checkley Wood can be viewed across the fields during the walk. This wood is 40 hectares in size and although containing new plantings of conifers, in parts it retains many of the classic indications of it's ancient status. It is thought to be at least 400 years old.

The walk passes Checkley Hall a grade II listed building. Checkley Hall was built by the Delves family of Doddington in 1694. It replaced an earlier timber framed house.
Nearing the end of the walk, Prince Hill can be seen, where a Wellington bomber crashed during the war whilst on a training mission.
The small linear woodland called Threeper's Drumble is a site of Biological Interest and contains some interesting wild flowers, some of which can be seen from the lane during the walk.
