Walk Cheshire’s beautiful Sandstone Trail

Frodsham, Cheshire

Take a walk on the wild side discovering the ancient market town of Frodsham, Georgian Whitchurch and everything in between.

Start your day in Frodsham, before climbing to the summit of Overton Hill from where Delamere Forest lies ahead, the perfect destination for a picnic. Further along the trail, on the outskirts of Delamere Forest, is a hidden gorge called Urchin’s Kitchen. It’s a glacial melt-water channel formed at the end of the last Ice Age and well worth a visit along the way.

Leaving the forest, you climb up on to a ridge overlooking the Welsh hills before finally reaching the pretty market town of Tarporley, with its abundance of pubs, coffee shops and hotels; you can opt to stay here before continuing on with your journey.

There’s plenty more to see and do: stop off at Beeston and Peckforton Castle, try your hand at making candles at the Cheshire Candle Workshops or sample delicious Cheshire Farm Ice Cream.
