Walking in Cheshire

Explore the stunning scenery and wildlife of the region by walking in Cheshire, with hundreds of walks to suit all ages and abilities, there has never been a better time to enjoy breathtaking views, wild moorlands and rocky ridges.

Introduce the family to the joys of walking, with a hike up to White Nancy; the iconic Grade II listed folly that dominates the Cheshire Plain. Let imaginations run wild with a walk through the legend filled woods of Alderley Ege to Stormy Point, the setting for Alan Garner's novel The Weirdstone of Brisingamen.
