Cheshire
The extended Baker Way links the heart of Chester with Delamere Forest Park. The core of the route is provided by the original Baker Way - a long established route from Christleton to Brines Brow Picnic Area. The original route was devised by members of the Mid Cheshire Footpaths Society and commemorates the life and work of Jack Baker, one-time footpaths officer for Cheshire County Council. The extended Baker Way provides links to bus and train services at both ends, allowing the route to be walked in either direction without the use of a car.
