The Sandstone Trail around Beeston has a lot of Circular walks of varying degrees of difficulty. Its worth buying a book (search for Sandstone Trail on one of the book websites). The all round views are spectacular on a clear day and there are 2 or 3 decent hostelries to base from and enjoy some refreshment after a good day... More

For my review I am concentrating on just one section of the trail which is Frodsham Hill (sometimes known as Overton Hill). This section is simply beautiful giving stunning views of the River Mersey Estuary, Liverpool and the Wirral Peninsula. Tip 1: Drive up Frodsham Hill by following the road from Frodsham Station (just off the High Street) and follow... More

Lovely country pub/restaurant with views over Cheshire plains. Great place for meal any time of week but need to book at weekends. All food home prepared and well worth the value, lovely bar staff who made us feel very welcome after a long walk along the sandstone path.

We came here today with the dog for a bit of a mooch and dog walk. The views from the top of frodsham hill were excellent and well worth the decent. We parked up at the free car park on Simons lane in frodsham, climbed to the top of the hill before heading back as it was getting dark early... More

The trail is actually very long and the best bits are around Beeston. St. Chad's church is a hidden gem, not visible from the road it stands in the middle of a field.

We often walk the section between Frodsham Hill and Helsby Hill as a circular walk with a coffee stop at the White Lion,Alvanley. Fantastic views towards the Mersey and the surrounding Cheshire countryside.A lovely way to spend 3 hours on a summers day or a crisp winters day

You don't need to walk the entire trail to enjoy this lovely part of Cheshire. If you want a variety of circular routes, park up around either Bickerton or the National Trust car park at Bulkeley Woods, get out an OS map and then just wander. Good pubs in the area including The Sandstone, The Pheasant and The Bickerton Poacher.... More

Have done the sandstone trail a couple of times, over 2 - 3 days camping along the way, plenty of campsites to stay at whilst enjoying the walk. Camp at either Kelsall or Bickerton Poacher. Great thing is there is a train station at either end, Frodsham or Whitchurch.
