Little Moreton Hall Circular Walk

About

Enjoy a walk in Cheshire’s rural heartland – a landscape shaped by centuries of farming.

Linking up with the Macclesfield Canal allows you to enjoy a gentle stroll along this picturesque waterway, before returning once again to cross the fields back to the unique half-timbered Little Moreton Hall.

This timber framed, moated manor house dates from 1450 and was originally only two storeys tall. Between about 1570 and 1580 a large ‘long gallery’, was added to the south wing – giving the house its distinctive, top heavy, appearance.

By the beginning of the 18th century this iconic Cheshire building was let as a farmhouse – and many of the rooms were used for storage. Within a century it was derelict, with the roof subsiding and windows boarded up.

During the 19th century the house was restored and it was given to the National Trust in 1938. Little Moreton Hall’s Elizabethan Knot Garden was recreated by the Trust in the 1980’s.

The route takes you through the tranquil Cheshire farmland and along a pleasant stretch of the Macclesfield Canal.
