Start: Mobberley Railway Station
Map: OS Explorer 268
Terrain: Mostly flat but with numerous stiles

This circular walk explores the beautiful countryside in the Parish of Mobberley, one of the oldest parishes in England. The area is rich in history and the route passes the church of St Wilfrid and St Mary which dates back to 1245 and is certainly worthy of a visit. The railway station was built in 1862, followed by the Railway Inn which was no doubt much appreciated by weary travellers! With another public house on the route, the Church Inn, excellent food and toilet facilities are readily available.
The walk combines a range of footpaths through pasture and arable fields, as well as country lanes and an impressive stretch which crosses the approach to the runway of Manchester Airport. Here is where the incoming planes loom at what feels like just a few feet overhead!
Terrain The route is mostly flat but has numerous stiles and is therefore unsuitable for wheelchair users or those with mobility problems. There are some wet and boggy areas and walking boots are a necessity.
