This route forms one of the Knutsford Rail Walks leaflet which is a collection of local walks from railway stations in the Knutsford Local Area Partnership. The leaflet was developed by members of the partnership and the Mid Cheshire Rail Users' Association.

Terrain: The walk is almost flat and is on surfaced tracks except between Ryecroft Farm and Birkin Farm, which are on clearly marked footpaths.

Barriers: 0 stiles, 3 kissing gates

Toilets: There are no facilities on the route, but toilets are available to patrons of the Greyhound pub.

The village of Ashley lies very close to both the M56 motorway and Manchester Ringway Airport, but retains a rural charm whilst serving a strong farming community. The walk is mainly level and offers contrasts of the rural and the major transport links which pass through and over this corner of Cheshire.
