The Heritage Loop circular route runs through the old centre of Mobberley, one of the oldest parishes in England and mentioned in the Domesday book, before passing right next to Manchester International Airport where Concorde is now housed. It returns past the National Trust’s Quarry Bank Mill and along a prehistoric track on Lindow Moss where the remains of Iron Age ‘Lindow Pete’ were found.

The Heritage Loop, together with the Cheshire Cheese Loop, are the two circular routes which together form Laureen’s Ride, a 53 km / 33 mile ride in the green heart of Cheshire East, ideal for friends or family trips. The route can be ridden as two separate loops, or as a long distance ride over two or three days using local accommodation. There are few hills to climb and lush scenery to enjoy. Signposting, plus maps and route guides mean you don’t have to worry about losing your way. Of course walkers will love the route too.

Here are some comments from riders who have ridden the route:
“Lovely country lanes” Terry Hobin
“Very enjoyable, easy to follow ride, through pretty countryside over a variety of terrain” Emma Davies

Laureen's Ride was developed by North Cheshire Riders in partnership with Cheshire East Council, with funding from the British Equestrian Federation, British Horse Society and local riding groups.
