Cheshire
The North Cheshire Way is one of Cheshire's newest and longest paths. It provides 70 miles of waymarked walking from Wirral to the Peak District across some of Cheshire's most beautiful countryside. It was developed by The Mid-Cheshire Footpath Society as the brainchild of former member David Kinsell of Chester, who sadly did not live to see its completion.

It offers something for every kind of walker from serious hikers to families out for an easy stroll near their doorstep. The route has been designed to run close to the major urban areas of Merseyside, north Cheshire and Manchester - with easy access by car or public transport. Easy to use, it is waymarked throughout.

Places of interest along the route include Chester and the Wirral, Helsby Hill, Frodsham Hill, Weaver Valley, the Anderton Boat Lift, Marbury Country Park, Manchester Airport, Styal Quarry Bank Mill and Country Park, The Edge at Alderley, Adlington Hall, Lyme Park and Disley.
