About Us

Welcome to Whitegate Way, where heavy goods trains laden with salt once lumbered to Cuddington to join the Chester - Manchester line. Today the old railway line has been transformed and provides a haven for wildlife and a pleasant place for a stroll or ride.

Stretching for six miles (10km) from the heart of Winsford to Cuddington, the Way offers easy walking for all ages along a varied route. Shady wooded cuttings contrast with open embankments offering spectacular views across the Cheshire countryside.

Convenient access points for walkers, cyclists and riders allow you to walk or ride a length at a time. A totally accessible section, ideal for wheelchairs and pushchairs, has been developed from Whitegate Station.

Whitegate was the only station on the line. Today it has been developed into a picnic area with car parking and toilet facilities. Take time to look around the station area or use it as a staring point to explore the attractive countryside around Whitegate. There is also a car park at Bradford Road, Winsford.

Exploring further afield:

The Whitegate Way is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding countryside using the rights of way network, and is a useful link with the Weaver Parkway.

An 8km /5 mile walking route around Utkinton takes in Utkinton Hall and the beautiful gardens of Tirley Garth along the way.
