We finished the trail over the bank holiday weekend- from Beeston to Whitchurch but divided into two stages, rather than the usual three, as we are fairly experienced trail walkers. The walk from Beeston to Duckington was glorious with stupendous views to the Clwydian mountains and even the Liverpool skyline.Closer views were also often spectacular, given the relatively low height of the hills; the castles, the wooded gorges in particular. TheFrodsham to Beeston sections had also been full of interest.
The walk into Whitchurch, was less fun , over gently undulating farmland, followed by a 3 mile trek along a towpath. We did eat our lunch in the graveyard of a tiny interesting chapel (St Chads) and this proved to be the highlight of that day. This section was less dog friendly (stiles not kissing gates) and we had to contend with inquisitive cows, over friendly horses and distinctly arrogant sheep. Misleading signposting and a bog to cross at one point, did not endear us to the local farmer either.
We saw lots of wildflowers , a buzzard, kestrel,and a reed bunting pair, over these two days and didn't spend a penny (literally-not what you're thinking I might mean).( OK, i'm conveniently forgetting we had to take two cars for two people, simply to manage the logistics of getting about)
Overall, it's a great trail, that 's easy to get under your belt, but which still provides a memorable experience.
