“Jane and I set off from the very hospitable Pheasant Inn”, writes the well-known British outdoor writer, Christopher Somerville, in the London Times newspaper, “to explore the heights and the breathtaking views along the Sandstone Trail. This splendid three-day path hurdles the upthrust of Cheshire’s backbone, a sandstone ridge that runs from the River Mersey south to the Shropshire border.”

Somerville clearly has an eye to the land and its wildlife. His word pictures are certainly evocative. Read the rest of this stirring piece here.
