Bishop Bennet Way

55 km / 34 miles

Cheshire, Shrops
Named after an 18th Century traveller, the Way was primarily devised for use by horse riders. Whilst part of the route is along minor roads, most of this can be avoided by walkers using other rights of way. The route also takes in green lanes, bridleways and field paths as it passes through Milton Green, Coddington, Shocklach and Grindley Brook.
