“The best way to explore Cheshire – a landscape steeped in mystery – is on foot. This revised edition of a classic walking book contains fascinating. easy to follow walks exploring the unexpected past — from quiet strolls to hill and country rambles, by river, wood and ancient lane. Discover Pete Marsh — the bog man, a gypsy king’s grave, lost Roman and medieval roads, a church in the marshes, a ghostly duck and a headless procession, a stone elephant, a hermit’s cave, a haunted bridge, ancient copper mines, packhorse bridges, saltways and more.”
– Walks in Mysterious Cheshire and Wirral:
“Walkers coming to Cheshire and expecting an entirely flat county are in for a surprise. There are easy, undemanding walks that take you across characteristic, pastoral Cheshire landscapes, invariably passing through some of the attractive villages and by some of the county’s outstanding churches and country houses. But you can also experience rough and challenging moorland hikes on the edge of the Peak District, plenty of attractive woodland walks along the sandstone ridge, or across parklands, or through the remnants of the medieval forests, a superb choice of peaceful canal walks and, on the Wirral, even coastal – or at least estuary – walking.”
