We chose to do The Sandstone Trail from Whitchurch and work our way back up to Cheshire over 2 days. I am glad we did this as the best parts are Cheshire for views.The trail is well signposted and easy to follow but we did have a book which helped us along our way. Our favourite sections were Bickerton Hill... More

A great walk along Cheshire's great ridge. Circular walks are also accessible and make a brilliant day out.

A well marked trail with lots to see and talk about. Good for children and very well supported by a charitable trust.

I haven't walked such distances for a number of years because of injury. this was the perfect distance. We divided the trail into three days. The views over the River Weaver and the Mersey were spectacular. Walking the Shropshire Union Canal at the end was so relaxing especially the beer and chips at the Willeymoor Lock. We missed the waymarker... More

I'm walking the trail a bit at a time as I don't want to wear myself out so much that I don't enjoy the views and experience generally. I'm almost finished now and as long as you have transport and the free Trail Guide maps it isn't hard to find places to park for each section. The views are amazing... More

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.
