I walked the entire 34 mile route from Frodsham to Whitchurch on a weekday in early July. However, it took me 16 gruelling hours. It would have more enjoyable if I'd walked it over three days. I took a 35 litre daysack with sandwiches, bananas, sweets, two bottles of water, phone, camera, torch. I wore walking boots, walking socks, zip... More

Found it a really interesting variety of scenery. The way is very well signed and you could follow most of it without looking... More

Just completed the sandstone trail with my brother, really enjoyed it doing it in 2 day's staying overnight at the Bickerton pocher which is about 20 miles from Frodsham leaving slightly easier second day. Can highly recommend the Pocher as a overnight stop over. The trail is well marked and would be possible to do with the booklet from Cheshire... More

We walked up the sandstone trail at frodsham up to the top of frodsham hill. A nice easy walk that's accessible from frodsham. With great views over of the Mersey and Liverpool.

we decided to do this trail on a wet afternoon and wasn't disappointed. Was a great work out for a couple of hours as we took our time to take in the view. Recommend you take your walking boots though!
