Walk Summary
This walk explores the attractive and gently undulating countryside of south west Cheshire to the south and east of Malpas and close to both the Shropshire and Welsh borders. From many points there are fine views looking across to the hills of North Wales. About two thirds of the way round the route passes by the old and new St Chad's Churches at Tushingham and by a nature reserve which ha been for the past 15 years part of a dormouse reintroduction scheme.
Terrain
countryside fields and lanes, possibly muddy in parts depending on the weather.
