The Sandstone Trail

The Sandstone Trail is one of the finest and most popular long distance walks in North West England, in the UK. It’s also been voted by ITV viewers as one of ‘Britain’s Favourite Walks‘, and is one of Julie Bradbury's Top 100 walks.

The Trail stretches for 34 miles/55 kilometres and offers superb, unbroken, and often elevated walking across the still largely green and pleasant English county of Cheshire. It runs from the ancient market town of Frodsham on the broad Mersey estuary, in the north, to Georgian Whitchurch in rural north Shropshire, in the south.

Significant places of interest and habitation on the route, starting with Frodsham, are Woodhouse Hill Fort, Alvaney Cliff, Simmond's Hill, Delamere Forest Park, King's Chair (Hangingstone Hill), Wharton's Lock (Shropshire Union Canal), Beeston Castle, Peckforton Hills, Raw Head (Bickerton Hill), Maiden Castle Fort, Llangollen Canal, Grindley Brook and Whitchurch.
