Here’s an interesting article on the Sandstone Trail from the Chester Tribune magazine, July 2010 issue.
“FOR WALKERS AND THEIR FAMILIES, there’s no better place to be at the height of summer or on a crisp winter’s day than high on Cheshire’s central sandstone ridge. Only a few miles away from the compact walled city of Chester, the ever-popular Sandstone Trail is the ultimate ‘Cheshire Way’.
For many good reasons, it’s one of the finest and best loved middle-distance walks in North West England. The Trail offers unbroken walking over some of the loveliest countryside in Cheshire.
It meanders across the still largely green and pleasant English county of Cheshire 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.
Walking even a short section makes a perfect family day out. With its beautiful scenery and wide and ever-changing views, the Sandstone Trail is an invigorating place to be at any time of year.”
