Walk Waypoints

  1. 1 From St Bertoline‘s church take the road to Alsager, passing the White Lion on your right. Note the little well set into the bank on the left just after the pub. Take the first track on the left, then after about 50m take the footpath to the right that runs along the side of a barn. Follow the footpath across several fields in the direction of the A500(T) and then turn left to walk along the road boundary fence until you reach the stile.
  2. 2 Cross the A500(T) with care. Turn left at the top of the steps and follow the footpath along a green lane passing a duck pond before reaching Mill Lane.
  3. 3 Turn left and walk past the entrance to Daisy Bank Farm, following the single track lane to the road junction.
  4. 4 Turn left at the road junction to follow the lane across the A500 (T) after the bends cross a little stone and brick bridge and continue ahead.
  5. 5 Turn right, just past the first footpath on the left, to follow a track between hedges used by horse riders. If you reach the next road junction you have gone too far. Follow the track to the end and turn right to follow the lane leading to Englesea Brook.
  6. 6 After walking along the road for approximately 300m take the footpath on the left, which follows along a hedge before entering the adjacent field. The path skirts around a pond, then veers left a little, away from the field edge making a bee line for the stile to the right of a small copse.
  7. 7 At Dean’s Lane turn right and then after 200m take the second footpath on the left just after the entrance to Limes Farm. Follow this footpath along the field edges with the valley of Dean Rough on your right.
  8. 8 After crossing a small bridge in a tiny side valley continue ahead across the field but look for the stile in a thicket ahead, which marks the junction of several paths. Cross the stile, descend the bank and turn left on the bottom to follow a pleasant footpath in the valley bottom, past a pond and along the edge of pretty woodland slopes. Eventually join a track and follow this along to Audley Road.
  9. 9 At the road turn left to walk back to Barthomley.
